December 1st, 2017

5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

The HOPE sports and performance meeting, in honor of the late Allen Richardson, is coming up! This meeting is all about getting your talented colleagues together and learning about sports medicine and performance topics. HOPE (Hawaiʻi Orthopaedic and Performance Education) is a nonprofit entity designed to bring Hawaiʻi sports practitioners together for free food, fun, education, CME and giving back to the community we live and thrive in. This event typically lasts for two hours and two CME credits are available.

The big difference with this December meeting is that we moved it to a Friday and you can invite your significant other to join. There will be ample room, open bar and food. Please RSVP to if you plan to attend.

We also have a special guest speaker, Hawaiʻi’s own Olympic gold medalist swimmer and member of International Swimming Hall of Fame, Lillian ‘Pokey’ Richardson.
