Free Webinar on Orthopedic Injuries in Youth Sports, April 3

Dr. Dirk Leu
Sports is a big part of the lives of many kids…and their parents. From soccer to lacrosse to hockey to gymnastics to cheerleading, participation in a sport is a rite of passage for millions of American youth.
While there are countless positives to youth sports, there is also a significant downside in the danger of a sports injury. In fact, more than 3.5 million sports-related injuries in children who are 15 and under are treated by medical centers in the U.S. each year, according to the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission. These injuries can range from a simple sprain to a broken bone to a torn ACL.
On Wednesday, April 3, at 12 p.m., the Rubin Institute invites you to have your questions answered by attending a free lunchtime webinar with Dr. Leu. He will share his insights on how orthopedic injuries can affect youth athletes and how these injuries are treated.
