The Huffines Discussion 7

The Hilliard Discussion 7 (HD7)

sponsored by the Huffines Institute

An event like no other. We bring eight national leaders and thinkers in Human Performance and Sports Medicine to Texas A&M and let them speak each for 15 minutes. What will they say?  Talks are at a conversational level - for everyone. 

So be with us  on November 17, 2017 from 1:00-4:00 pm at Rudder Theatre on the campus of Texas A&M University, College Station, TX to find out what is the cutting edge in Sports Medicine (see map below).  The doors open at 12:30 pm...don't be late!

Admission is free – made possible by the Sydney and JL Huffines Institute for Sports Medicine and Human Performance with advertising support from The Eagle and TexAgs.  There will be free cinch back-packs to the first 250 in the door!

And if you can't get to College Station this year, you can still see the Hilliard Discussion 7 sponsored by the Huffines Institute live at one of the Satellite Sites.  If your Institution is interested in serving as a Satellite Site, send an email to Huffines Director, Tim Lightfoot
