Annual Guerry and Michelle Suggs Sports Medicine Symposium

2017 to be announced soon

Memorial SportsCare hosts an annual, one-day symposium on sports medicine. The information presented is intended for an audience of athletic trainers, physical therapists, PTAs, primary care physicians, coaches, athletic directors and parents with an interest in sports injuries.

The goal of the symposium is to provide a review of the fundamentals in sports medicine as well as present the latest information on advances in theses areas. This is an excellent opportunity for ATCs, PTs and primary care physicians interested in athletes to refresh their knowledge on a broad variety of topics. The general public, who may be interested in sports-related topics, is also invited to attend.
