and Priscilla tu, do, faoasm, faafp for aoasm 

Rosen Shingle Creek Resort, Orlando, Florida

A person is a unit of body, mind, and spirit – this is a core tenet of osteopathic philosophy. This year’s conference will review the latest updates of each of these aspects and their impacts on our patients with a history of trauma. For the first time, the American Academy of Osteopathy (AAO), and the American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine (AOASM) are teaming up to explore these relationships, particularly in the athletic population. The conference will kick off with a day of sports medicine topics – the following day will be the “Body” day, examining the physical and musculoskeletal responses to trauma. Then, the “Mind” day will focus on the neuropsychological and neuroanatomic response to trauma with a special emphasis on pain perception. The “Spirit” day will discuss the psychological aspects of trauma. The final day will incorporate all these considerations into an improved practice approach for us all.
