Creating a More Inclusive Environment for LGBTQ+ Athletes
This presentation will highlight the cultural competence knowledge gap and its effects on healthcare for the LGBTQ+ athlete community. Clinical outcomes will be established by reviewing resources and initiatives from the NATA LGBTQ+ Advisory Committee, university student affairs, Athlete Ally and LGBT Safe Sport. Athletic trainers will walk away knowing the importance of cultural competence education and be introduced to several resources they can utilize to educate themselves and their peers to accomplish the goal of creating a more inclusive environment for LGBTQ+ athletes.

Finding Wealth as an Athletic Trainer
"Finding Wealth as an Athletic Trainer" is an interactive experience exploring the 10 Forms of Wealth that lead to happiness, success, and life balance. Participants will actively assess all areas of their life and evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, as they see them currently. In completing this activity, and putting it to use on a regular basis, athletic trainers can look forward to finding balance, clarity, and overall wealth in their life. Whether athletic trainers are looking for ways to find their dream job, make more money, decrease stress, seek clarity about where they are in life, or just learn new ways to become the BEST version of themselves they can be, ALL athletic trainers will benefit from this assessment tool! Athletic trainers can also use this tool with athletes, patients, family, friends, colleagues, and more. The sky is the limit with opportunities to finding wealth, so plan on DREAMING BIG into SUCCESS!

Sleep: What Do We Know?
Optimal, high quality sleep is critical for health and is considered one of the most potent performance enhancers available, and it's free. During sleep, many processes take place including repairing and rebuilding muscle, and the pruning and forming of new memories. For athletes, sub-optimal sleep can lead to health risks, impaired mood, and shorter time to exhaustion, poor nutrition choices, and greater injury risk. Ralph Reiff will present the science of sleep in a down-to-earth manner the audience will accept. The tactics to achieve incremental positive changes in sleep will be presented and discussed. Sleep hygiene is the starting point to improve personal sleep efficiency and benefits

Information will be presented on the use of BFR for maximizing recovering from injury or surgery. The safety of exercise with BFR after common surgeries and injures will be analyzed. A brief overview of mechanisms for pain relief will be covered along with information on the mechanism responsible for facilitation of hypertrophy, particularly as they relate to rehabilitation. The current clinical applications of BFR in rehabilitation will be explored and the practical challenges of applying BFR will be examined.
