To help keep kids in the game for life, STOP Sports Injuries targets the sports that have the highest rates of overuse and trauma injuries. I have just accepted a position as a member of the STOP Sports Injuries Outreach and Education Committee for a four year term effective August 1, 2014. We will be meeting Friday, July 11th at the annual meeting and I am excited to post new developments here; stay tuned!
Dr. Lynn Kovacevich and I will again be at Super Jock 'n Jill Running Store in Greenlake for Medical Night Tuesday, July 15th from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Bring your questions and your injuries! Hope to see you there!!
Big thanks to Super Jock 'n Jill in Greenlake for hosting my Minor & James colleague, Dr. Lynn Kovacevich, and me for their Medical Nights at the store last night. We saw many athletes and runners and discussed injury prevention, training and medical issues.
This is the second time we've done a Medial Night; I'll keep you posted when we schedule the next one. Hope to see you there!
