HIGH POINT, N.C., June 28, 2013 – High Point University and Cornerstone Health Care Foundation hope to help those working with children in school sports by sponsoring the Fourth Annual Free Sports Medicine Seminar. The “Athletes: Diet and Exercise” seminar is an all-day event, which will be held on July 30 in Phillips Hall on the HPU campus.
The seminar is free and open to Triad area K-12 public and private school coaches, athletic trainers, school nurses, athletic directors, volunteer coaches and others who can benefit from up-to-date information on diet and exercise for younger and growing athletes. The event will include presentations by faculty and staff from HPU’s School of Health Sciences and Department of Athletics, as well as Cornerstone health professionals.
“Diet and exercise are two key foundational components upon which performance is built. By presenting practical evidence-based information, athletes have the best chance to improve their performance in a safe and meaningful manner, without risking their health and unnecessarily pre-disposing themselves to injury,” says Dr. Daniel Erb, dean of the School of Health Sciences and Cornerstone Foundation board member. “North Carolina is one of the most overweight states in the country. As a result, a number of children and young adults are being encouraged to ‘lose weight’ to improve their health. It is important that these, as all individuals, are led through an evidence-based approach to improving their health.”
