Written By: David Janosik | February 3, 2023

The Institute for Exercise Physiology and Rehabilitation Science held its third annual conference on Jan. 27 and 28 at FAIRWINDS Alumni Center on UCF’s campus in Orlando, bringing together researchers, clinicians, students and athletes to exchange ideas and advance the fields of exercise and rehabilitation science.

At the 2023 event, participants heard from experts who delivered the latest on topics related to pain science, performance science in Major League Baseball, fitness and physical activity after stroke, cognition for sport performance, the importance of nutrition during rehabilitation, and more.
