Millions of children and adolescents participate in organized sports in the U.S. With the trend to year-round participation in a single sport and the push to early specialization, children are at increased risk for overuse injury. This talk will discuss diagnosis and recognition of common overuse injuries in the pediatric population.

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand the areas of the musculoskeletal system at highest risk for injury in a child or adolescent
2. Understand factors that contribute to overuse injuries in children
3. Recognize characteristic finding of overuse injury on plain films and MRI
4. Understand ways to prevent overuse injuries in children

With more than 25 years of experience as a practicing Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon, teacher and mentor, I know the challenges faced in the rapidly changing health care industry. I have practiced in a variety of settings and trained medical students and residents for more than 13 years. Currently, I use my experience and insight to help others enhance their practice, develop their career and get to the next level professionally and personally. Transition to active practice, on-boarding of new practitioners to a healthcare system and well being of the practitioner are areas of special expertise and interest. As an executive coach and consultant, I help young practitioners take the lead in their career development and help seasoned practitioners improve their practice and work environment.

I attended medical school at the University of New Mexico and my residency and fellowship training at Case Western Reserve and the State University of New York at Stony Brook. I have practiced in New York, Florida and Oregon.
