TTUHSC El Paso Holds Q&A on Sports Medicine

On Friday, July 21, the Office of Institutional Advancement held its latest session of The Exam Room — a monthly Facebook Live Q&A that invites the public to submit questions to health care professionals at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso).

Justin Wright, M.D., a physician in the Department of Family and Community Medicine, hosted the session. Dr. Wright, who specializes in sports medicine, took questions from viewers about a range of topics, including injury prevention and concussion management and athletic trends such as fitness trackers, dietary supplements and cryotherapy. Dr. Wright directs the TTUHSC El Paso sports medicine fellowship program, which works with athletes at The University of Texas at El Paso and local high school sports teams and serves at on-site athletic events like the El Paso Marathon.
