The 2013 International Conference for the Health, Safety and Welfare of Jockeys (ICHSWJ) is taking place at Monmouth Park in New Jersey on September 13-14.
The conference is organized by the European Officers Group and comes under the auspices of the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities. The conference is aimed at administrators, racetrack doctors and anyone involved in licensing of jockeys.
This is the fifth conference, and the previous four were held in Japan, Turkey, Dubai and last year at the same venue, Monmouth Park. The conference focuses on jockey-related issues and features presentations from some of the most highly respected medics, administrators, nutritionists and researchers who specialize in dealing with jockeys.
There is no registration fee.
This is a unique opportunity for anyone who is involved with jockeys to meet and hear presentations from representatives of the major racing authorities, to discuss jockeys’ health, safety and welfare-related issues and to hear the results of the latest research that is being carried out with jockeys.
