onsite at the CASEM Conference 2011
Today is the first official day of the Canadian Academy of Sport & Exercise Medicine CASEM Conference in St. John’s Newfoundland. Pre-conference activity has been going on since Monday with the Team Physician and Anti-Doping sessions. The SIRC Anti-Doping newsletter went out yesterday and there has been lots of positive buzz with it, which is great to hear! Last night was the reception to kick things off. There are lots of familiar faces and some new ones who stopped by to say hello and ask questions so it is shaping up to be an exciting few days.
Social media is on the agenda as CASEM attendees are embracing Twitter and Facebook. Several physicians have mentions retweeting and forwarding SIRC Newsletters, like the special issue on Lightning in June.
