 Dr. Patrick McKeon, PhD, ATC, CSCS gives invited presentation on federally funded ankle rehabilitation research to sports medicine clinicians at West Point Military Academy

On Friday, November 8th 2013, Dr. Patrick McKeon, PhD, ATC, CSCS, Clinical Education Coordinator and Assistant Professor of Athletic Training presented his research on Sensory-Targeted Ankle Rehabilitation Strategies (STARS) as part of the John A. Feagin Sports Medicine Fellowship Lecture Series at the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY. The STARS project is currently being funded by the NIAMS at Ithaca College, and was the foundation for Dr. McKeon's presentation to the orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists and athletic trainers at West Point, which in turn, led to exciting and promising conversation for future collaborations between the USMA and Ithaca College on related clinical research questions.
