Encouraging Young Leaders in our Community

Reading Time: 1 minute

On June 30, 2017, the University of Miami Sports Medicine Institute held its 8th Annual Student Leadership Day. High school students from the South Florida area came together to learn from high profile guest speakers like Jon Beason, former NFL and UM Football player.

"I hope we start a spark within these students," explains Dr. Lee Kaplan, director of UHealth Sports Medicine Institute and the program's creator. "So they can be real ambassadors and leaders back in their community."
