About this Event

The major objective of this Roadshow is to assemble health care practitioners from diverse disciplines who are involved in the care and management of athletes at risk of, and those affected by, sports-related injuries.

The Roadshow will include, management of sports-related hip groin and knee injuries as well as foot/ankle, concussion, S&C, nutrition, psychological impact of chronic injury and overall player welfare and much more.

The idea of different speakers across a variety of locations means that we can bring the hot topic discussion to your locality .
