ACSM Past-President Shares Proceedings Journal from India Delegation

Last December, ACSM Past-President Larry Durstine, Ph.D., FACSM, led a delegation of seven sports medicine professionals to India. Dr. Durstine recorded all the details – from the one-of-a-kind educational opportunities to the unique cultural experiences – in his Journal of Professional Proceedings.

One excerpt from Dr. Durstine’s journal reads, “We learned from Sumaya that her country is just now beginning to realize the significance of sports medicine and the advantages someone from this field can bring to an organization. Because of the lack of job prospects in India, Sumaya started her own company designing workout facilities for corporations, and she owns a fitness club...Our group was inspired to see how much she values her trainers and invests in their education by paying for Continuing Education Credits and connecting them with the American College of Sports Medicine.” Read more.
