The College of the Canyons Sports Medicine Program and Valencia High School Medical Science Academy will host the 2019 Sports Medicine Professions Fair at the college’s Valencia Campus on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 10 a.m. to noon.

The free event will begin with a morning presentation from a panel of industry professionals (athletic trainer, physical therapist, chiropractor, orthopedic surgeon, emergency/urgent care doctor, and EMT) designed to help audiences better understand these respective professions and discuss a range of topics including:

* training/education/degree needed to work in different areas of the sports medicine field
* costs attached with pursuing this type of education/training
* average expected earning salary upon degree completion

Later, attendees will have the opportunity to visit the professions booth section of the fair and receive additional information and explore the various training and education options available to students interested in beginning a career in sports medicine.

Organizations scheduled to participate in the day’s events include Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, Southern California Orthopedic Institute, Vargo Physical Therapy and Vertical Wellness Sports Therapy Chiropractic.

“This fair will assist students in choosing a profession that best fits their personal needs and interests, as well as chart a course that will enable them to finish their education in a timely manner,” said COC athletic trainer and event organizer Sarah Ehrsam.

The 2019 Sports Medicine Professions Fair will run from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 23, beginning in the East P.E. gymnasium. Free parking is available in student lots on the day of the event.
