Download: [ PDF ]

The Pac-12 Conference, the NCAA, and the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA collaborating with the American Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) and The U.S. Council for Athletes Health (USCAH) will host a Health Equity Summit addressing Race, Gender, Identity and Accessibility Matters in Collegiate Athlete Health on January 26-27, 2023, at the Luskin Center on the UCLA campus. The summit will provide an opportunity for attendees to engage with both multidisciplinary leaders as well as experts in research and the clinical care of competitive athletes with a specific focus on improving health equity.

A key goal of the summit is to provide examples of effective educational programming for collegiate sports medicine professionals and practitioners, as well as strategies for creating a more inclusive environment for supporting diverse and underrepresented student-athletes both now and in the future.

Participants will have the opportunity to examine healthcare delivery through the lens of diversity, equity and inclusion in order to analyze its impact on the collegiate student-athlete population.

The two-day program will feature lectures and panel discussions, including with current and former student-athletes, physicians, athletic trainers, educators, and administrators as they explore current and historical disparities for underrepresented populations, unique burdens and impacts on mental health.

Target Audience

This course is targeted towards healthcare personnel and personnel within intercollegiate athletic departments who work directly with collegiate and elite athletes. This may include, but is not limited to, clinical psychologists, team physicians, athletic trainers, dietitians, academic advisors, athletic administrators and interested student-athletes.

CME Credits

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA designates this live activity for a maximum of 10.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Athletic Trainers Credits

UCLA is approved by the Board of Certification, Inc. to provide continuing education to Athletic Trainers. This program is eligible for a maximum of 11.25 Category A hours/CEUs. ATs should claim only those hours actually spent in the educational program.

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
