Dr. Kenneth Hunt vividly remembers how, as a high school football player in the 1990s, he and his teammates often ran up and down stadium stairs during practice.Their coach made the players run the steps as part of the team's conditioning regimen to strengthen their legs, improve their cardiovascular systems and boost their balance.
It is with great pride and excitement that we announce our 2nd Annual CU Orthopedic Research Symposium and D'Ambrosia Diversity Lectureship. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, November 11, 2020, this will be a virtual event. Our inaugural symposium held this past May 8th hosted more than 200 attendees, 96 posters, and 12 plenary presentations. It was comprised of faculty members and trainees with research interests across clinical and basic, pediatric and adult, and operative and non-operative areas of orthopedic research. The event drew broad attention, with attendees from CU, CSU, Colorado School of Mines, University of Rochester, University of Delaware, and University of New Mexico. Given the very positive feedback, we expect an even larger turnout in 2020.
Dr. Kristy Weber from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and current President of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons will anchor the event as the D’Ambrosia Lecturer.
A call for abstracts and additional information will be available in Summer 2020.
