Map and Directions

The Delaware Academy of Family Physicians' 14th Annual Sports Medicine Symposium, taking place the evening of March 10, 2016, will feature an exciting venue of topics that will educate the busy practitioner in the field of Primary Care Sports Medicine. Exercise for promoting health is a focus of this year’s conference, and an “Exercise Prescription” will be presented along with an overview of the proper use and choice of exercise equipment for our patients. Recognizing that our patients may exercise in various scenarios, the challenges of the athlete in high altitudes will be presented, as well as the unique concerns and injuries of scuba divers. An educational presentation of orthopedic pearls will sharpen our skills in the care of our patients.

This year’s symposium has the challenge of five speakers presenting a wealth of information in a rapid-fire, concise, efficient manner on a weekday evening, a “March Madness” of sorts for the attendees. Hang on and enjoy this marathon evening of fun and enjoyable learning.
