Aloha Hawaii Sports Practitioners,
The HOPE sports and performance meeting, in honor of the late Allen Richardson, is coming up! This meeting is all about getting to hear your talented colleagues and learning about sports medicine and performance topics. HOPE (Hawaii Orthopaedic and Performance Education) is a nonprofit entity designed to bring Hawaii sports practitioners together for free food, fun, education, CME and giving back to the community we live and thrive in. This event typically lasts for 2 hours and up to 2 CME credits are available per meeting (accrediting body JABSOM HCCME Consortium). You are welcome to stay, eat and leave as you have time for.
What’s new…ATC continuing education credits will be available. We also have a new website: HopeSportsHawaii.org so visit us for more information on HOPE!
