And so we come to March, and it's almost time for one of the major events in the sports medicine calendar, the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) annual meeting, which will be held this year between April 12 and 17th in Houston, Texas. 

This Issue, as ever, we are proud to bring you all of the abstracts from the 2019 Conference. Our print issue includes the Oral Research Poster Presentations, Rising with Research Presentations, Research Podium Presentations and Regenerative Medicine Pre-Conference Presentations, together with the AMSSM Case Podium Presentations available online. A great body of interesting work is presented with a broad subject base. 

In addition, we bring you a major AMSSM Position Statement update on Concussion in Sport, following on from the Society's previously published Position Statement on Concussion in Sport published back in 2013. 

Lead Author Professor Kim Harmon, Head team physician at the University of Washington Huskeys and past President of AMSSM, and her Colleagues have produced a Statement which should be of great practical value to both primary care sports medicine physicians and other clinicians involved in the assessment and treatment of concussion in sport. In addition, the Statement identifies 12 areas of focus for future research on the topic.

Kim is also our guest on this month's podcast, interviewed by our Emerging Media Editor James MacDonald, when she discusses the Position Statement in greater detail. 

All of us at CJSM are excited and looking forward to the AMSSM Conference, and we hope to see you there. 

Keep in touch with events at the Conference on our Twitter feed, @CJSMonline and on our social media channels. Don't forget to check out the CJSM Blog. 

Enjoy the Conference!

Best wishes, 



Christopher Hughes MBBS MSc
