Sports Medicine Symposium Draws Professionals from Many States
Middletown, Ohio, Monday, June 30, 2008 – Atrium Medical Center hosted its ninth-annual Sports Medicine Symposium June 26, 27 and 28 at Kings Island Resort and Conference Center. The symposium brought together regional and national experts to present the latest treatment and prevention techniques to more than 150 sports medicine and rehabilitation professionals from as far away as Tennessee.
“Sports and athletic-related injuries remain among the toughest to treat and prevent,” said Joyce Koehl, MS, ATC, a certified athletic trainer at Atrium and the symposium coordinator. “By bringing in regional and national experts to present the latest advances, our symposium offered sports medicine professionals a hands-on opportunity to improve their care of athletes while earning up to 20 Continuing Education Units.” The symposium was open to anyone involved with sports medicine, including athletic trainers, physical and occupational therapists and certified strength and conditioning specialists.
