Meet the Experts – NEW THIS YEAR!!!

On Friday, October 4 you will also have the chance to meet the experts up close and personal.  There will be breakout sessions to meet with registered dieticians, sports performance coaches, clinical exercise physiologists, an athletic trainer, wellness/health coaches, and a physical therapist.  If those don’t float your boat, you will have the opportunity to learn how to market yourself for your future careers in exercise science. Stay tuned for how to participate!
