special sessions from our friends at the ‘Physios in Sport’ conference

As part of the IFAC partnership with the ACPSEM Conference, ‘Physios in Sport Conference,’ we are delighted to welcome two speakers from this conference to the International Festival of Athletics Coaching. On Friday evening James Moore and Dr. Cara Lewis will be presenting two seminar sessions at the first breakout session of IFAC 2013 at the Marriott Hotel.

Dr. Cara Lewis is part of the faculty at Boston University's Sargent College, where she is Assistant Professor of Physical Therapy, Rehabilitation Sciences, and Medicine. Her research focuses on the mechanics of hip pain and interventions to reduce hip pain. IFAC delegates on Friday 25 October will be able to attend Dr. Lewis’ seminar on “hip structure and sport: what we can and cannot change”

James Moore is a highly experienced musculoskeletal physiotherapist. In addition to private clinical work he has worked throughout the UK, USA & Australia with professional athletes ranging from Olympic Track and Field to National & Premiership Rugby. For a number of year’s he was National Clinical Lead Physiotherapist to UK Athletics, working closely with Lee Valley based athletes like Christine Ohuruogu. Moore’s Friday night seminar will discuss “the coach’s role in injury prevention”

IFAC delegates also have the additional opportunity to attend a special ‘Physios in Sport Conference’ evening seminar on Thursday 24 October. Delegates arriving early for IFAC are encouraged to sign up for this exciting session at a special rate of £40-00. The title of this session is 'Profile of a Modern Day Athlete' and promises a little something for everyone: physios, coaches, rehabilitation specialists, prehab experts, strength & conditioners, athletic trainers and therapists alike.

This ground breaking seminar will take place in the theatre-styled Bute Hall with a roundtable of experienced speakers presenting and debating points from a raised platform at the front of the Hall opposite the grand organ.
