The recent FSEM conference, supported by ARTI, proved to be a huge success. Building upon last year’s initial partnership, ARTI proudly supported the Twelfth FSEM Annual Scientific Conference 2015 “Sports Injuries and Illness in Young People – A Complete Picture”. As well as the numerous ARTCs in attendance, there were also international members of the Athletic Training and Therapy worlds with visitors from Spain and the USA to name two. Experts from around the world presented on topics relating to sports injuries and illnesses in young people. ARTI was excellently represented by Dr. Siobhán O’Connor ARTC, Mr Andrew Watson ARTC and Ms Áine Lucey, ARTC in the main thematic sessions. There were also many research presentations delivered by current and future ARTCs.
This type of collaboration between ARTI, the FSEM and ISCP in delivering this high quality sports medicine conference is something that ARTI wishes to pursue into the future with the help and input of its members.
