Bring your extended care team (PA’s, ATC’s, Primary Care Sports Medicine), for an excellent comprehensive update, from pre-participation to injury treatment and rehabilitation, to safely get your patients back in the game.

Engaging highlights include:

• Innovation and emerging technology in sports medicine with keynote lectures on the Top 7 Trending Sports Medicine topics for 2016

one-on-one consults
