This month, I have followed the Women’s World Cup pretty closely, and I bet many of you have too. Throughout the month of June, we have had a number of soccer-related discussions on Sports Medicine University. I posted an interview with John Gallucci, the medical director for Major League Soccer, where we talked about making soccer safer at all levels. I also posted a “tip sheet” on soccer injury statistics that members can add their names and practice information and share with their patients or readers. And we held our monthly video conversation on injury prevention programs, like neuromuscular ACL programs. We would love to have you in Sports Medicine University, so click here for more information on joining!
