Coffee, Kids and Sports Medicine

Adapting Education in 2020 for Medical Professionals

Our commitment to educating future medical professionals cannot be stopped. As medical conferences across the globe have gone virtual, our monthly series, Coffee, Kids and Sports Medicine, also continued in an on-demand format. Even after on-demand activities expire, recordings are available on the RITE Connection YouTube playlist with 2019 programs

Course co-directors Henry B. Ellis, M.D., and Gerad Montgomery, M.S.N., FNP-C, thoughtfully consider the audience’s needs in developing the series each year. Montgomery says, “We want to address the questions the attendees face day-to-day in their practices with all active children, not just young athletes.” Topics often cover conditions that do not need a referral to our pediatric orthopedic and sports medicine specialists.
