This year’s conference will focus on sports-related knee injuries which are unfortunately very common and costly.

The conference will share the latest research and recommendations related to knee injury prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation to keep athletes healthy and help them stay in the game.

All conference registrations include the Thursday evening reception, 6-8 pm, with keynote speaker. Attendees must select this option during the registration process.

Agenda:

Education sessions will include the following topics: knee injury prevention, surgical interventions, non-operative management, rehabilitation, and team approach to sports medicine. Each session will include multiple speakers and a moderated panel Q&A. Speakers include keynote speakers and UNC Chapel Hill faculty who are national and international experts on these topics and include orthopaedic surgeons, sports medicine physicians, and sport science and rehabilitation researchers.

Audience:

Orthopaedic surgeons, sports medicine providers (physicians and APPs), physical therapists, athletic trainers, and exercise specialists. Continuing education application in process for CME, PT, and AT (BOC).
