Community leaders for orthopaedic injury research day

22 September 2016

The Orthopaedic Research Unit will host several experts and community leaders in trauma and sports science at their second symposium on 30 September 2016.

The theme of this symposium is Orthopaedic Research for You (OR4U).

The focus is to generate discussion on preventing and treating sports injuries and injuries caused by violence and major trauma, which will result in collaborative projects that are relevant and useful to our community.

Community invitees include Don Pinnock (gang violence in Cape Town), Gary Kirsten (grassroots cricket) and Emeritus Professor Tim Noakes (insulin and sports injuries).

The symposium will be held in the Tafelberg venue at Groote Schuur Hospital from 08:00 to 16:00.

The event will be live-streamed for those unable to attend.
