Presented by Boston Children’s Hospital Division of Sports Medicine. (Kathrine presents at 11 AM on Friday, June 19). This conference is a fabulous opportunity for anyone interested in the science and health of women’s sports, because it is open to anyone who wants to register. Even in my lifetime in the USA, women’s sports physiology was shrouded in myths of weakness and danger. Now thanks to conferences like this, science has gone past debunking the myths to showing how women can excel at any level. What a joy for me to be a keynote speaker at a conference that will have some of the best minds in medicine presenting research that will advance yet further. Can’t wait! Join us. More information will become available mid-February.
