This conference is the intersection of health, technology, and innovation for our U.S. Armed Forces. Industry, academia, and government all come together to share novel ideas and report key findings to optimize tactical athlete performance. The theme for the 2018 Tactical Athlete Summit is Better…Faster…Stronger – Improving Tactical Athlete Performance. The two-day summit is hosted by the Warrior Research Center, part of the Auburn University College of Education, School of Kinesiology. The summit consists of keynote speakers, presentations, posters, and panel discussions about research in the field and new projects related to soldier training, injury prevention, medical treatment/rehabilitation, equipment/vehicle impact, and more. Researchers and non-researchers, including athletic trainers, military personnel, police and fire divisions, equipment manufacturers, engineers, and doctors, as well as students, faculty, and staff from any institution are invited to attend.
