Sports Medicine Presentation at West Island College
Doyle-Baker Lab summer student Mike Christie recently gave a presentation to a sports medicine class at West Island College about some trends in the field. Mike spoke to grade 10 and 11 students about the science behind concussions and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, his ACLR-START study investigating ACL injury in skiers, the increasing trend of obesity in society, and the use of exercise to help manage mental health. The students, many of whom are interested in pursuing sports medicine as a career, had many insightful comments and questions. As a West Island College alumnus, Mike thoroughly enjoyed presenting to this group of students and would like to thank Coach Rav Grewal for the invitation to speak.
