Close to 1,500 high school athletes from Southern California are expected to gather at Staples Center on Monday for the second annual High School Sports. Providence Health & Services, Southern California, is teaming with the National Honor Society of Sports Medicine to sponsor this seminar to address health issues for young athletes. The seminar will be held from 12:30 to 5:15 p.m.

Scheduled speakers include neurologist Michael Marvi, M.D. of the  Hycy and Howard Hill Neuroscience Institute, Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, who will speak on sport-related concussions; cardiologist Arby Nahapetian, M.D. of Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, who will speak on sudden cardiac death and Mike West, President, California Athletic Trainers’ Association, who will speak on the future of athletic training in California.

The audience will be comprised primarily of high school students enrolled in sports medicine classes at their schools. They will explain health conditions of concern to young athletes and the treatments available. Athletic trainers, coaches, college athletes, paramedics and therapists will work hand-on with students to encourage proper training, warm-up and care for injuries.

Staples Center is located at 1111 S. Figueroa Street in downtown Los Angeles. For more information on the seminar, call (818) 631-7429.
