Welcome to the May edition of Current Sports Medicine Reports!

We are only a few weeks away from ACSM's Annual Meeting in San Diego; who is excited? I am looking forward to walking through the rows of posters, having a hard time deciding which session to attend, the great academic discussions, and of course seeing and reconnecting with professional family. 

Pierre A. d'Hemecourt, MD, FACSM, has assembled a practical set of three case reports and three sections articles for this Sideline and Event Management issue. The case reports cover concurrent bilateral patellar tendon ultrasonic debridement in a collegiate athlete, radiographically proven re-fracture of a healed anterior inferior iliac spine avulsion, and septic acromioclavicular joint due to throwing in an adolescent football player. The section articles dig into the topics of injury patterns of the 2018 Bank of America Chicago Marathon to help optimize medical planning, meniscus root tears, and prone Lachman with ultrasound.

We have an excellent and timely special communication titled, “ACSM-AMSSM Call to Action: Adapting Preparticipation Cardiovascular Screening to the COVID-19 Pandemic," written by Aaron L. Baggish, MD, FACC, FACSM; Cindy Chang, MD, FACSM; Jonathan A. Drezner, MD; Kimberly G. Harmon, MD, FACSM; William E. Kraus, MD, FACSM; Jason M. Matuszak, MD; and Meagan M. Wasfy, MD.

Be sure to also check out the columns in this issue: Pearls and Pitfalls and Web Alerts. 

As we transition to spring, I hope you can sit outside and enjoy some beautiful weather while reading this edition. 
If you are on social media and follow ACSM and the ACSM family of journals – please like, forward, and share those posts. Every click and share matter!

Also, it's never too early to start thinking about the 2023 ACSM Annual Meeting; that submission deadline approaches quickly after the annual meeting ends.
