Notable authors such as David O. Draper and Kenneth L. Knight cover topics such asacute wound management, ACL-reconstruction autografts, and diagnosis of infectious meningitis. The articles are followed by an online exam containing 55 questions. Upon passing the exam, you may print out and submit a certificate for continuing education credits.

    Jennifer M. Medina McKeon, PhD, ATC, CSCS, is an assistant professor in the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance at Ithaca College in New York. Her academic and research interests include functional anatomy and pathoanatomy, biomechanics, sport injury epidemiology and time-to-event analysis, evidence-based practice, and clinical analysis of risk factors associated with lower-extremity injury. She has received funding from the National Institutes of Health and has presented her research at the local, national, and international levels.

    Patrick O. McKeon, PhD, ATC, CSCS, is a BOC-certified athletic trainer who joined the Ithaca College athletic training faculty in 2013. McKeon’s research focuses on functional alterations associated with lower-extremity joint injury, specifically ankle instability. He incorporates patient-, clinician-, and laboratory-oriented outcomes to evaluate these alterations due to injury and rehabilitation. McKeon seeks to develop a greater understanding of the restoration of sensorimotor function associated with musculoskeletal rehabilitation.
