CSIO Staff Hold A Sport Medicine Planning Session

Friday, May 9, 2014

This past Wednesday, CSIO’s Sport Medicine and Sport Science staff held a day-long sport medicine planning session to start building the strategic and operational plan for service delivery in that area. Led by CSIO’s Director of Sport Science and Sport Medicine, Troy Taylor, staff from various disciplines including sport medicine and therapy, nutrition, biomechanics and athlete career transition, gathered to collaborate and discuss short and long-term goals. CSIO was also fortunate to have external advisors, including Wilma Shakespear, former National Director of the English Institute for Sport; Dr. Jane Labreche, Sport Science/Sport Medicine Advisor for Summer Sports at Own the Podium; Steve Di Ciacca, Physiotherapist for Rowing Canada; and Dean Boles, Provincial Mentor Coach for Swim Ontario, present throughout the day to add valuable input in generating a long-term vision for how sport medicine will evolve over the next 5-10 years at CSIO.
