This workshop will focus on preventing knee injuries as well as optimizing long-term joint health.  Types of prevention will be discussed along with specific strategies that can be translated to clinical practice including prevention and injury screening programs.  A mixture of lecture and lab components will provide attendees with the newest knowledge in prevention programs as well as information about the long-term risks associated with traumatic knee injury and how ATs can help to potentially offset some of the risks.  The workshop will be based on the recent consensus statement published by the Athletic Trainers' Osteoarthritis Consortium.
