Conference Description
The title of this year’s conference is “Back to the Future: Forging Future Horizons through History.”  2023 will mark NEACSM's 50th anniversary: 50 years of being the leading resource in the New England region for exercise science, sports medicine, health, and fitness information. For our 2023 Fall Conference, we will be highlighting changes over the past 50 years, showcasing our successes and examining our challenges. We will also continue to identify the best practices and most promising scientific advancements that will allow us to face future challenges, making this year's meeting a very special commemorative occasion.
The focus of this year's conference is to recognize and celebrate the significant progress we have made in sports medicine over the past half-century. By highlighting these achievements of the past 50 years, we aspire to allow our history to serve as an inspiration for future breakthroughs and push the boundaries of the knowledge in our diverse disciplines. Commemorating 50 years of breakthroughs also serves to raise public awareness about the importance of our work and build public trust in our communities. Finally, this occasion will allow us to celebrate and honor the contributions of the researchers, practitioners, and educators, who have dedicated their lives to advancing exercise science and sports medicine knowledge to improve health and fitness.
This conference will display and celebrate the remarkable work conducted regionally, nationally, and internationally to propel human health and well-being.
