3rd Annual James R. Andrews, MD Endowed Lectureship in Sports Medicine

Uptown Campus
Lavin-Bernick Center

The arena of youth sports in ever changing. Currently, sports specialization is contributing to an increase in exposure to acute and overuse injuries in youth athletes. A major objective facing sports health providers is to develop a more standardized approach to assessing acute injuries that occur during play, as well as the prevention and treatment of overuse injuries in specialized athletes.  The discussions of how to address both types of injuries, acute and overuse will be a benefit in the way of patient care and intervention of the injuries.
