April 4, 2014 — Athletic TIPS (Toward Injury Prevention in Sports), a national not-for-profit organization that drives expanded awareness and education around the role of multidisciplinary care in the recognition, management, and prevention of sports-related injuries, will host its second certification seminar during the annual homecoming of Palmer College of Chiropractic, West Campus, May 2-4, 2014, in San Jose, Calif.
On Saturday, May 3, 2014, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Drs. Phil Santiago and Ed Feinberg will lead the Athletic TIPS seminar, addressing key areas of concern related to sports.
“Certification seminars empower doctors of chiropractic to better serve their communities through the delivery of educational community workshops,” shares Kent S. Greenawalt, chairman, Athletic TIPS, who points out that certified doctors receive marketing and public relations/media relations support to ensure awareness of their role in promoting sports safety in local community press. “Athletic TIPS shows promise in gaining support from major sports organizations nationwide, and participating in the delivery of hundreds of community workshops. The chiropractic profession is privileged to be in this position to become certified and conduct workshops on behalf of Athletic TIPS and its future partners.”
In addition to complementary marketing information, the seminar will focus on four core components:
- Preventing Dehydration and Heat-related Conditions
- Nutrition in Sports Management
- Recognizing, Managing and Preventing Musculoskeletal Injuries
- Concussion Recognition and Prevention
Seminar attendance is limited to 40 doctors of chiropractic on a first-come, first-serve basis. All attendees are required to join the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP) at the monthly rate of $25, or $300 per year. To enhance the seminar experience, NFL Hall of Famer Jerry Rice will spend a short time with attendees prior to participating in a lunchtime appearance at homecoming on Saturday. Photos with Rice will be available at no cost to all F4CP members.
“Following our inaugural seminar in Las Vegas, we received tremendous feedback that helped to shape the program’s messaging and delivery,” shares Greenawalt. “We greatly appreciate those who supported us throughout development and, moving forward, we expect all involved will be impressed with and soon garner the benefits of this game-changing program.”
