NASCAR Safety & Operations Summit (JS1801C)

January 7, 2018 to January 9, 2018

The Safety and Operations Summit is an educational CME opportunity for personnel involved with the healthcare and safety of NASCAR drivers, crew members, and staff.  The participants will receive both instruction on topics relevant to their medical roles in the race environment including emergency medical response, mass casualty management and triage, concussion evaluation and management, ophthalmological evaluation and management, and event medicine (which includes medical issues relevant to venues hosting large numbers of athletes and spectators).  The attendees will receive evidence-based instruction from expert instructors.  The format will be primarily case-based and will utilize both didactic lectures and hands-on instruction via a pre-course “Boot Camp.”
