Soccer Star Turned Orthopedic Surgeon Serves At-Risk Populations

Dr. Stepan, a Chemistry major, played on the Men’s Soccer team under heralded coach David Masur ’03Ed.D., whom he considers a profound influence. “He constantly pushed us to our limits, and sometimes a little bit beyond,” Dr. Stepan explained. “That was instrumental in overcoming any difficulties I had with academics, and the lessons he taught served me well in my career. He definitely made me more resilient.”
