It was a full house at this year’s Wood Forum featuring talks on the latest research in preventing and treating shoulder and elbow injuries, and a special presentation by Rhett Warrener, former Calgary Flames defencemen, on the impact of shoulder injury on career and life.
The symposium, held on Oct. 28 at the Red & White Club in Calgary, was moderated by Jon Cornish, former Calgary Stampeders All-Star running back. It featured presentations by leading researchers, including orthopaedic surgeons Kevin Hildebrand and Mark Heard, physiotherapist Dr. Judy Chepeha, and Dr. Martin Ferguson-Pell, professor in the Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Alberta and Executive Director of ABJHI.
