Ethical best practices will the the focus of the conference, which will also include information on the medical aspects of the illness. 

The conference is intended for high school and college coaches, trainers, and athletic directors.  It will feature physicians and trainers from the 49ers, SCU, San Jose State,  and UC-Berkeley.
