UCI Health & Boras Family Foundation Establish Long-term Healthcare Partnership

Orange County-based UCI Health to become official healthcare partner of the Boras Family Foundation providing communities complimentary resources

Newport Beach, Calif., February 16, 2023 – The Boras Family Foundation today announced the partnership of UCI Health, the clinical enterprise of the University of California, Irvine, as the official healthcare partner of the Foundation.

The partnership will extend throughout California and Arizona in conjunction with participating states in the Boras Baseball Classic, including Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada.

“It has been a long-standing goal to further help young athletes on and off the field, a goal Chad Lefteris, CEO of UCI Health, shares. Partnering with UCI Health allows the Foundation to offer vital resources and education to these young athletes who may otherwise not have access to it. Sharing my passion for education and the freedoms it allows and using sport to further a player’s academic career is made possible through the strategic partnership with UCI Health. Coaches, parents, and athletes have reached out to seek additional resources. We are proud to offer these educational resources complementary to the sports community at large with UCI Health.”

– Scott Boras, Director, Boras Family Foundation

“As a former student athlete, access to health education, injury prevention and wellness were difficult to come by. UCI Health is proud to support The Boras Foundation mission to create an environment where all players have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.”

– Chad T. Lefteris, CEO, UCI Health

The multi-year partnership will also provide community health & education resources with co-hosted events throughout the year. Topics include mental health in sports and establishing healthy habits, nutrition and wellness for athletes, top 5 practices in physical maintenance and recovery, and playing the long game: sports and education.

Each event will feature healthcare professionals from UCI Health with expertise in the abovementioned topics.

All events will be complimentary to attendees. A complete calendar of events to be released in Spring 2023.
