Experts in sports medicine, sports psychology, sports science, nutrition and sports culture will present strategies to prevent and treat clinical issues and injuries that can limit a female athlete's performance. This interactive conference will improve attendees’ awareness and comfort level in managing salient issues for the modern female athlete (ex. anger management, transition out of sport, empowerment, female-specific equipment, fertility) in addition to providing updates and state-of-the-art information about more traditional topics (ex. ACL updates, new concussion and head injury information, injury rehabilitation, female athlete triad) and more. This conference is meant to share the science and provide networking opportunities to improve female athletes’ training, confidence, and motivation to advance their success on and off the field.
