Bo discusses health in recent speech

Coach Bo Schembechler, 77, was the keynote speaker on Tuesday, June 13, 2006, at the Oakwood Healthcare System's inaugural Men's Heart Health Program at the Dearborn Inn. An article regarding the event was published in the Sunday, June 18, 2006, edition of The News-Herald (a Heritage Newspaper). During his speech, Bo discussed his medical history and he related how it impacted his years coaching. Bo also gave the crowd advice on how to stay healthy. He further discussed his current medical situation which includes the fact that he had a pacemaker installed about a year ago and he takes four shots a days for diabetes.
He said the Oakwood program was the first time he was ever asked to speak about his medical history. He was introduced by one of his Michigan players, Dr. Marc Milia, who is an Oakwood orthopedic surgeon. An overriding theme of Bo's speech was regarding the importance of "attitude." He said, "I give myself credit for one thing. I took the attitude this will not stop me."
Coach Schembechler finished his career as Michigan's all-time leader in coaching wins with 194 victories. Go Blue!
