ANN ARBOR, MI – This February marks the two year anniversary of the first public statement by the first sexual abuse survivors by the late University of Michigan sports doctor Robert Anderson.

From the late 1960s to the early 2000s, Anderson worked at UM in a variety of positions including director of the university health service and physician in the sports department. Former students and athletes say Anderson underwent unnecessary hernia and prostate exams, which included genital petting during routine exams.
