Undergraduates, graduate students, and investigators from across the country will have opportunities to participate, present, and discuss their research as it relates to the themes of this conference at the poster session. (We look forward to getting your abstracts!) A mix of researchers and scholars, students, parents, athletes, athletic directors, coaches, and policy makers are expected to attend.
