The branch of medicine that deals with the incidence, distribution, and possible control of diseases and other factors relating to health.

How does this apply to Athletic Training?

That is where Mitzi Laughlin steps in and discusses her specialty.

With research and epidemiology you need to be able to look at all the different angles and aspects as to why.

Why we do the Sports Medicine Broadcast – 108

Why we do the Sports Medicine Broadcast – 108

Dr. Mark Knoblauch of U of H MAT interviews me to find out why we are doing the Sports Medicine Broadcast.  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.
