US Lacrosse and MedStar Health Webcast - May 21st

On May 21st, Focal Point Productions and Mid-Atlantic Video Streaming will be producing an hour long webcast for MedStar Health and US Lacrosse on the topic of head and ACL injuries.

Head injuries and ACL knee injuries are two of the health topics with increasing interest to today’s lacrosse players, parents, and coaches. What are the symptoms of a concussion? How long is the healing process? Are there best practices to help prevent ACL injuries? Is surgery always necessary?

Viewers can find out the answers to these questions and more during the live webcast, where medical experts will be available to answer questions.  They can join the conversation using #AskMedStar or #LacrosseHealth on Facebook or Twitter, or by submitting questions in the live chatroom.

The US Lacrosse Sports Science and Safety Committee, in partnership with MedStar Sports Medicine, will present two 30-minute informational sessions on Wednesday evening, May 21, featuring a panel of medical experts to discuss each of these topics. The sessions will be presented in live webinar format, beginning at 7 pm (EST), and will also be recorded and available for review following the original presentation. Panelists for each session are shown below.
