The Prevention and Return to Activity Centre hosts classes and seminars for the public to learn more about various sports injury causes, treatments and assessment techniques. Seminars will feature lectures from experts in the fields of sports medicine, physiotherapy (physical therapy) and strength and conditioning. Coaches, trainers, parents and active individuals are encouraged to attend.
Opportunities will be available for researchers interested in utilizing the space and programs for their respective projects. Research at the Glen Sather Sports Medicine Clinic (GSSMC) will allow the centre to evaluate and expand the knowledge base, providing direction to the programs.
For more information on how to participate, contact Jackie Whittaker, research director at GSSMC for details.
