Justin Wright, M.D., a physician in the Department of Family Medicine, will host the session to discuss sports injuries, physical therapy and prevention strategies. Dr. Wright will take questions from viewers about a wide range of topics, including sports medicine trends, like cryotherapy, dietary supplements and fitness trackers.
