Introduction to attendees on behalf of the Stony Brook Orthopaedics Department: Women in Sports, Injury Prevention and Treatment in 2020. 

Due to the ongoing crisis with COVID-19, please join us from the comfort of your own home to virtually attend this educational seminar. 

Physicians and other healthcare professionals will explain the knowledge needs in relation to this topic and the gender gap in sports. There are a number of topics in sports medicine where the standard of care is rapidly changing. It is imperative for the target audience to be able to access an update in one place with the opportunity to ask questions as they fill in their individual gaps. The female athlete presents challenges that are often different from their male peers, dissecting out and presenting these distinctions is step one in raising awareness in our local sports medicine community.

Registration is required.  Please register by clicking on the Register Now button below.  After you register, you will be contacted the week of the event with the link to the Zoom session.  Zoom is accessible via smart phone or computer.

Cancellations will not be refunded.
