The Pac-12 Conference, the NCAA, and the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA collaborating with the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) and The U.S. Council for Athletes’ Health (USCAH) will host a Summit to Understand and Address Barriers to Health Equity and how they may impact the student-athlete on January 27-28, 2022 at the Luskin Center on the UCLA campus. The conference provides a unique opportunity for a multidisciplinary exchange with the leaders in both research and the clinical care of competitive athletes as it pertains to health equity. The course will feature sessions on current and historical disparities for underrepresented populations, unique burdens and the impact of mental health, effective educational programming for members of the collegiate sports medicine units and strategies to create a more inclusive environment for diverse and underrepresented student-athletes.

The two-day program will feature lectures and panel discussions from top Health Equity experts, current and former student-athletes, physicians, athletic trainers, and administrators from across the nation and explore the important issues surrounding diversity, equity and inclusion, present new findings and discuss policies and procedures that can improve the environment for all student-athletes.

CME Credits

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA designates this live activity for a maximum of 11 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Nursing Credits

The California State Board of Registered Nursing accepts courses approved by the AMA for category 1 credit as meeting the continuing education requirements for license renewal. Nurses from states other than California should inquire with their local State Board for specific continuing education policies.

Athletic Trainers Credits

UCLA is approved by the Board of Certification, Inc. to provide continuing education to Athletic Trainers. This program is eligible for a maximum of 11.25 Category A hours/CEUs. ATs should claim only those hours actually spent in the educational program.

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
