Recap: Keeping Female Athletes in the Game Injury Prevention Seminar

We were live blogging from UW Health Research Park Saturday. A recap of the day is available below.

 

This free UW Health Sports Medicine seminar taught female athletes, parents and coaches several techniques to decrease the incidence of knee injury to female athletes between the ages of 12 and 18.

 

"Keeping Female Athletes in the Game," featured sports medicine physicians Dr. Tammy Scerpella, Dr. Kathleen Carr, and Dr. Alison Brooks as well as health psychologist Dr. Shilagh Mirgain, and the UW sports rehabilitation staff.
