We are broadcasting live and interviewing the speakers of the Memorial Hermann's Sports Medicine Update. Some of the recordings pick up noise, but this is a live event.
We plan to release the lecture and then the interview. Through the course of the summer the podcasts will be shorter, more frequent, and a lot more raw (less editing).
All the lectures and handouts have been uploaded and are now available on Google Drive.
Go to www.drive.google.com and sign-in using the following:
Once the school year resumes we will return to our regular format.
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.
89 – Advancing Concepts of Core Exercises with Ryan Collins
Here is our interview with Ryan Collins, Physical Therapist for Memorial Hermann. 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.
Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. David Geier joins us to talk about several different topics from why he runs a podcast: The Dr. David Geier Show, his thoughts on youth sports, and his path to becoming a surgeon.
Earn some CEUs, learn some, and connect with us all while working, exercising or relaxing.
Chris Shaddock has received several awards but those do not speak do not speak to the volumes of great things he is doing at Dawson High School with Sports Medicine. Find him on twitter for more great ideas: @fabu_AT
Pasadena Independent School District's Athletic Trainer situation is really good:
5 High School = 10 ATs + 1 Stadium AT; Sports Medicine 1&2 in all 5 schools, no core/ regular classes.
David Wilkinson, Bubba Wilson, and Randy Dugas tell how they made it happen here and how you can begin to do the same where you are. Research is key, but perception of value is equally important.
