NFL team physicians to host conference on football injury prevention and conditioning

CHICAGO--Baseball season has hardly begun but sports medicine specialists are already talking about gridiron injuries and football players' health.

What's the NFL's current policy on anabolic agents and supplements? Do certain helmet designs reduce concussion rates? What can team physicians do to prevent heatstroke and sudden cardiac death on the field? How do players train differently in-season vs. off-season? These and other topics will be discussed at the conference, "Sports Medicine and Football: The 2006 Perspective," to be held at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Hollywood, FL, May 11-13, 2006. Media attendance is invited.

Featured speakers include:

  • John A. Lombardo MD, NFL Advisor on Policy and Procedures for Anabolic Steroids and Related Substances
  • Elliot Pellman MD, NFL Medical Liaison and Chairman, NY Jets Medical Department, with an update on traumatic brain injury
  • Lawrence L. Lamade Esq, Counsel to the NFL Management Council, speaking on the effects of HIPAA law on disclosure of an athlete's medical condition.

In addition, a well-known former NFL player is scheduled to be available to the media to discuss injuries, rehabilitation and his experience with sports medicine professionals.

This conference is jointly sponsored by the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), the National Football League Physicians Society, and the National Athletic Trainers' Association, and is supported by the National Football League.

A press room with high-speed Internet access will be available and journalists will have the opportunity to interview speakers. Complimentary breakfast provided every morning to journalists.
