The Eastern Athletic Trainers’ Association (EATA) Program Committee has accepted our proposal, “The Risk of Match Injuries in Amateur U.S. Men Rugby-7s” (General Session 1-hour) for the 2018 EATA Annual Meeting and Clinical Symposium, January 5-8, 2018 at the Sheraton Hotel in Boston, MA.

The 68th Annual Meeting and Clinical Symposia will be at the Sheraton Boston Hotel, which just unveiled a multi-million dollar renovation including updates to 450 guest rooms, a renovated restaurant and spa.  Situated in the Back Bay the Sheraton is connected to the Shops at Prudential Center, minutes from Fenway Park, Copley Square, and The Museum of Fine Arts and four miles from Logan Airport.

Greg Janik, President-Elect and Program Chair has created an outstanding program offering 17.5 possible CEU’s (including 6 EBP sessions) and pre-conference workshops offering an additional 1.5 EBP credits.  Greg has thought outside the box and this year’s sessions offer a variety of topics not routinely presented which will appeal to those in all settings, including secondary schools and emerging practices.

The mission of the EATA is to provide its members with quality educational programs, as well as scholarships and research opportunities for students and certified members. Friday evening will feature the highly entertaining Student Quiz Bowl and Saturday night’s awards banquet to recognize our award winners and student scholarship recipients. Once again Saturday will conclude with the Collins Sports Medicine reception after the banquet.
