UPCOMING EVENTS!


November

November 13, 2018 - "Rehabilitation professionals providing meaningful public health education for ACL injury prevention/risk management."
Location - University of Scranton
Time - 6:30 p.m. 
Course Description - There are over 250,000 ACL surgeries in the US every year while results in an annual cost of $4-$6 million. Evidence has shown that there are also long term implications of injury, specifically osteoarthritic changes within 10-15 years of the initial injury. Injury reduction programs have shown to be effective but their implementation remains limited. Rehabilitation professionals are frequently involved in the recovery process, but our involvement in reducing injury risk is less common. This presentation will cover reasons for becoming involved in proactive risk management and suggestions for how to implement a successful program.
