Conference Description
The goal of the 2024 Fall Conference, "Building Bridges: Spanning the Gap Between Professional Silos," is to bring together students, researchers, healthcare-providers, and educators from diverse professional backgrounds

We will be featuring invited speakers from a wide array of professional disciplines, including psychology, nutrition, public health, sports medicine, and exercise physiology. It is our hope that by expanding our reach and including professionally diverse perspectives, we will provide a rich platform for education, networking, and community building.

Invited speakers: Dr. Sarah Camhi, Dr. Meghan Garvey, Dr. Pradeep Dinakar, Dr. Aston McCollough, Dr. Brandon Yates, Dr. Ana Abrantes, and Dr. Paul Gallo
