On Tuesday, June 20th, area coaches and local athletes gathered for the fourth annual South Central Sports Medicine Coaches Seminar. The event was held to update coaches on current trends in proper hydration prior-to and following athletics. Beau Lower, Director of Rehabilitation for the New Orleans Saints, was the keynote speaker.
Along with updates in the field of sports medicine, South Central Sports Medicine honored local athletes for the 17-18 Scholar Athlete Program.
