Event Description:

The 20th Annual Sports Medicine Symposium for the Healthcare Professional is designed to increase knowledge in the ever expanding and changing sports medicine field. The topics selected are balanced between orthopaedic problems, injury prevention and other subjects.

 A multi-disciplinary faculty of experts has been selected, not only for their clinical experience, but also for their ability to communicate information in a meaningful way. The objective is to present the latest advances in the standards of care in a wide range of topics. The information presented will include practical applications for physical therapist, athletic trainers, physical therapy assistants, and other healthcare professionals to enhance their care of athletes.
