Sports Medicine Lecture on Sept. 26

The Distinguished Lecture Series in Sports Medicine at Hope College will examine new developments in assessing shoulder injury on Thursday, Sept. 26, at 7 p.m. in the Maas Center.

The public is invited. Admission is free.

Dr. Paul Borsa of the University of Michigan will present "Instrumented Arthrometry for the Shoulder: From Feel to Real." He will discuss the use of instruments that can be used to measure shoulder movement and condition, comparing the precision of the technique to the older, traditional method of manual tests and visual inspection.

Borsa is an assistant professor of kinesiology and director of the athletic training program at the University of Michigan. He has published many scientific articles on shoulder injuries in sports. He is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine, and received four awards for his research in this area.

The Distinguished Lecture Series in Sports Medicine is designed for health care professionals with an interest in physically active patients, and is intended for students, educators and clinicians alike. It is co- sponsored by Holland Community Hospital, GRSportsCenter and the college.
