Working directly with the medical community is where the personal training industry is headed—don’t get left behind! Attend the preconference offering “Medical Interfacing: Build an Elite Team of Professional Medical Advisors” at IDEA® Personal Trainer Summit WEST on June 28, 2002 from 9:00 AM to 1:30 PM.

Kate Grace, PT, OPA-C, will discuss what your role should be in the medical community and teach you how to organize and run injury screenings with medical professionals or clients. You will leave with a better understanding of common orthopedic and sports injuries and a way to assess your clients’ postural alignment.

“I hope that session attendees will gain a better understanding of how physical therapists, physicians and
personal trainers can work together for the betterment of their clients,” says Grace.

Looking for even more information on postrehabilitation? You’re in luck—
the postrehabilitation track is back! Physical therapists from Physiotherapy Associates will lead a 10-hour track (CECs available) June 29 and June 30 to help you work within your scope of practice with postrehab clients. You will participate in hands-on labs, practicing assessment and training techniques for postrehab clients.

The postrehab track sold out early at last year’s Summit, so don’t wait—sign up today! If you haven’t received your IDEA® Personal Trainer Summit WEST and World Fitness IDEA® brochures, please contact member services at (800) 999-4332, ext. 7,
