WASHINGTON - Members of the Georgetown University Sports Medicine staff took part in the BIG EAST Conference Sports Medicine Society Symposium, held last week in Clearwater, Fla.

The National Sports Medicine and Sports Law Conference, hosted by the league's sports medicine society, was held at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort on May 14-15.

Georgetown was represented by Head Athletic Trainer Shawn Hendi, who was installed as the new president of the BIG EAST Sports Medicine Society, as well as Associate Athletic Trainer Tom DiSanto.

Hendi, who has been a member of the BIG EAST Sports Medicine Society for five years, helped to organize sessions during the symposium dealing with heart issues in sports, cardiac arrhythmias in the athlete and the impact and diagnosis of concussions, a hot topic in collegiate and professional athletics these days.

"This was a really impressive panel and I'm really glad that I had the opportunity to be there," Hendi said. "The list of people who spoke there were some of the best in the nation and to have them discussing some of the hot-button topics of the day made it more relevant. It was one of the best educational conferences that I've been to in the last decade and was proud to have had a small role in putting it together.'

Course directors for the symposium included some of the top names in the industry. Barry Maron, the Director of the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Center in Minnesota spoke on issues relating to the heart, including causes of cardiovascular death, strategies for screening and criteria for disqualification. Mark Estes, the Director of the New England Cardiac Arrhythmia Center and the Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacemaker Laboratory at Tufts Medical Center, detailed issues relating to supplements and sudden cardiac death in athletes. Julian Bailes, M.D., a founding member of the Brain Injury Research Institute, paneled a discussion on concussions, second impact syndrome and the return to play.
