With the high prevalence of participation in endurance sports and injury rates, it is becoming more common for endurance athletes to seek care from their primary care provider(s), musculoskeletal/orthopedic specialists, physical therapists and other allied medical providers. 
 
Hosted by OSU Sports Medicine, the symposium will address medical, surgical, psychological and nutritional management for endurance athletes, as well as rehabilitation and injury prevention strategies. 
 
Bryan Heiderscheit, PT, PhD, will be the keynote speaker for the symposium. Heiderscheit is a renowned running athlete researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He will share his insights on what it means to be a running specialist and how to develop a running research program.
