Where are we?
At the Davis Mountain Sports Medicine clinic Bubba and I recorded some sessions, dealt with crazy weather, caught some interviews and had one heck of a long drive.
I would love to meet you at one of the conferences I podcast from. I personally feel Live CEUs are more beneficial…since you might get to see ME!!!!
If your schedule, budget or learning style is more of an online classroom thing then…
Time your purchase right and you could get 2 reporting periods done for about $200.

92 – Psychological Factors Associated With Recovery From Concussion
– Summer Ott PsyD
Here is our interview with Dr. Summer Ott. Since this recording comes from a live conference, some elements are lost due to lack of visual props and some crowd noise can be heard. The stellar content more than makes up for the difference in sound quality.
Bob Marley allowed us to record and interview the guests of the Memorial Hermann 13th Annual Sports Medicine Update. In the course of two days we conducted about 24 interviews, streamed live for about 16 hours, and had a lot of help from Dr. Josh Yellen, Dr. Mark Knoblauch, Bill Hale, former student / future Athletic Trainer Jazmin Dozal, and current SAT Sarah Avina.
Concussions are a very hot topic in news in general even more so in sports. Dr. Summer Ott is one of the top nueropsychologist in the country when it comes to concussion management.
