    >> 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.
