The Polar Bear Conference (PBC) is dedicated to the highest principles of excellence within all presentations by experienced and practiced speakers within the New England region of the US. The PBC was created to provide unrivaled education at an affordable price. The directors have set a price so that tuition will not be a factor in attaining the leading information within the field of Athletic Training. After the conference AT’s will be able to bridge the gap from medical evaluation, diagnosis, plan of care and return to play. It is imperative that athletic trainers understand the anatomy associated with the particular injury so that they may create an appropriate rehabilitation program that is in conjunction with physician’s diagnosis. The PBC’s philosophy is to treat the problem not the symptoms. This concept is at the core of what AT’s need to strive for to become a complete health care provider.
PBC is sponsored by OA Centers for Orthopaedics and Collins Sports Medicine to further advance its efforts and goals.
