The Canadian Academy of Sports and Exercise Medicine (CASEM) begins its annual meeting in beautiful Whistler, B.C. tomorrow.  Events have already begun, with the pre-conference Team Physician Development Course, and my good friend and fellow sports medicine colleague, Kate Wiley, M.D. from Calgary has been in attendance.  She provides us with a guest blog entry from Day 1 of the Team Physician course.  Thanks Kate!
