    Session Descriptions
    Welcome and Address     
    by Patrick McCarthy, MPH, CSCS, RSCC
    This session will take an unbiased look at how we can make coaches and fitness enthusiasts successful within the scope of this training system. We will look past the emotions people have with respect to this approach and discuss rational ways to accentuate the positives while offering solutions for the shortcomings.      
    By learning how to assess and train scapular control correctively, we can have a dramatic impact on upper extremity health and performance, whether it's with general fitness populations, post-rehabilitation clients, or athletes of all ages and ability levels. You'll learn about functional anatomy, faulty movement patterns, and innovative corrective exercises.      
    Don't let inflammation prohibit your performance or overall health. In this exclusive presentation, you will learn the application of an anti-inflammatory diet to reduce both acute and chronic inflammation in the body.      
    This presentation will address how to evaluate a fighter, strength and conditioning program design, and common misconceptions when training combat athletes. We will also discuss how strength coaches can collaborate with MMA coaches to help fighters develop the proper combination of strength and conditioning and mixed martial arts training. 
    This presentation will discuss observations, interactions, and interdisciplinary care of the sports medicine team including physicians, athletic trainers, physical therapists and strength and conditioning coaches for the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Team during the Olympic Games.
