A series of meetings hosted by the Australian Sports Medicine Association (ASMA) and the International Sports Medicine Group (ISSG) have taken place over the last two years in Melbourne.
The conference is a gathering of the world’s best experts in sports medicine and sports medicine management.
It takes place every two years and focuses on how to reduce and manage the risks of sports injuries.
While the conference focuses on the potential of sports medicine, it also aims to raise awareness of the risks associated with it, including its potential for infection.
What to expect: The SSA meetings are open to anyone and have a number of open sessions.
They take place at the ASMA’s headquarters, the Marriott Ballroom in the Melbourne CBD.
SASMA’s annual meetings are held each year from February to September and cover a wide range of topics.
This year, the conference is focusing on sports medicine.
Here are some key things to keep in mind: The meetings are free and open to the public, so you can attend in person or on a mobile device.
