Our Board of Directors are working hard to finalize what promises to be a spectacular meeting for you in February! As part of the opening Keynote Address, Dr. Joseph P. Dervay - Flight Surgeon at NASA - will discuss how “Space Medicine” broadly informs sports performance, medicine, nutrition, exercise and health sciences. Many bright young and emerging investigators will showcase the exciting, cutting-edge research going on in their laboratories and across the Great State of Texas.
Our Clinical Track includes a host of experts to address this year’s theme, “Running Medicine”. The clinical program is designed for orthopedic physicians, sports medicine physicians and fellows, physical therapists, athletic trainers, well as all academic demographics. Clinical Track attendees can earn CMEs and CEUs in a variety of running-related talks, case study discussions, roundtable presentations and hands-on workshops.
For the first time, the TACSM is inviting high school students interested in athletic training, sports medicine, sports performance, exercise science and health professions. High school students can participate in our meeting by presenting Clinical Teaching Posters in the clinical track and by competing in our Student Bowl. In addition, high school students will have an opportunity to learn about degree programs and academic opportunities at many universities throughout the State.
Our great traditions will continue on as bigger and better than ever! Attendees can look forward to the popular Student Bowl, student research poster presentations and the Raven Lecture, delivered this year by our Chapter’s Honor Award Recipient, Dr. Craig Crandall. Our Corporate Sponsors will showcase the most advanced technologies, products and resources in kinesiology, sports medicine, exercise, health sciences and sports performance practices.
