LOS ANGELES, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With an estimated 7.2 million students competing in high school sports and more than 2 million reported injuries annually (according to the CDC), preventative education has never been more important.

The certified program will help participants understand vital role of sports medicine for young, developing athletes; learn the correct response to critical moments; and define training programs that emphasize prevention, thereby contributing to long-term athlete health and performance.

Bray, Jr., as well as orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine specialists. Although offered free of charge, space is limited, so RSVP is required.
