TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Taking care of yourself on and off the field.
That was the goal of Saturday morning's Athlete Symposium at Union Hospital.
Athletes and parents learned how to take care of themselves throughout the sports season.
Doctors and athletic trainers gave insight on ways to prevent injuries and how to treat them.
"This gives us the opportunity to spend some time with athletes and with parents, and to really get this information across to them," said Jerry Palmer, Orthopedic surgeon at Union Hospital.
Through this event, Palmer says athletes could ask questions and learn more about staying healthy.
It's all to prepare for a better season.
