Symposium to Address Athletes and Abuse

A groundbreaking Athletes and Abuse Symposium, which will be held at the University of Pennsylvania, will explore the abuse and neglect of athletes at every level. Against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement, experts on sports will address the problems now emerging within the sports arena. The symposium will address youth, high school and college, Olympic, and professional sports.

This one-day symposium is the first university event to closely examine athletes and abuse across the spectrum of sports and ages. Leading experts, athletes, officials, and policymakers will shine a light on the challenges and on how to change the sports culture that puts athletes at risk.

Participants include: Keynoter, Dominique Moceanu, Olympic gold medal gymnast, and Panelists Douglas Glanville, former MLB outfielder, Phillies, Cubs, and Rangers; Nancy Hogshead Makar, 3-time Olympic gold medal swimmer; Shellie Pfohl, CEO, U.S. Center for Safesport; and Justin Tuck, former NFL offensive end, Giants and Raiders.
