Sports Medicine spring symposium

Binghamton University will be the site of a “Spring Sports Symposium” to be presented by UHS Sports Medicine in May. Coupled with a multidisciplinary sports emergency preparedness exercise, the symposium will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., on Saturday, May 7, at the Events Center at Binghamton University. The event is intended for coaches, athletic directors, emergency medical personnel, police officers, fire fighters, athletic trainers, physicians and others involved in athletic medical coverage in Greater Binghamton.

The symposium, scheduled for 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., will help attendees maintain their New York State cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and first aid requirements. They will learn current techniques for injury prevention and hands-on taping from UHS athletic trainers.

The preparedness exercise, set for 12:30 to 4:00 p.m., will feature a multidisciplinary team of physicians and other healthcare professionals who will review recent changes in the recommended management of spinal and catastrophic injuries among athletes. Such major injuries are rare but devastating occurrences in sports, and training as a team is considered essential to avoid game-day confusion.

The event is free, but advance registration is required by calling UHS Sports Medicine at 251-2605 by Wednesday, April 20. You can also register online here.
