>> ACL Research Retreat III
>> ACL INJURIES:THE GENDER BIAS
>>
>> April 7-8, 2006
>> Sheraton Suites
>> Lexington, Kentucky
>>
>> Sponsored by:
>>
>> Kentucky Sports Medicine Clinic
>> and
>> Drayer Physical Therapy Institute
>>
>> MISSION:
>>
>> It has been well recognized that female athletes are at significantly
>> greater risk of injuring their ACL compared to their male
>> counterparts. The reasons for this difference are not entirely
>> clear. However, there are a number of directions currently being
>> investigated including causes related to structural, biomechanical,
>> neuromuscular and hormonal factors. This is the third research
>> retreat on this topic. In the past, this retreat has attracted some
>> of the foremost national and international scientists involved in
>> this area of research. We hope to follow-up with the ongoing
>> research in the area as well as discuss new research directives aimed
>> at understanding the gender bias in the incidence of ACL injuries.
>> It is hoped that the information provided will make a valuable
>> contribution to the existing body of literature and continue to
>> strengthen the foundation upon which optimal prevention and
>> rehabilitation strategies can be developed.
>>
>> FORMAT:
>>
>> The format will incorporate two one-hour presentations by keynote
>> speakers with group discussions to follow. In addition, 15-minute
>> podium presentations of research relating to gender bias in ACL
>> injuries will be given. Significant time will be provided for
>> discussion of the presentations.
