FREE Movie Screening: Wednesday, November 20, 2019

The Game Changers

Executive produced by James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan, The Game Changers follows James Wilks — elite Special Forces trainer and winner of The Ultimate Fighter — whose world is turned upside down when he discovers a group of world-renowned athletes and scientists who prove that everything he had been taught about protein was a lie. Directed by Oscar®-winner Louie Psihoyos, The Game Changers mixes real-time, groundbreaking science with cinematic stories of struggle and triumph. The film features some of the strongest, fastest and toughest athletes on the planet — and it’s backed by them too — with additional EPs including Lewis Hamilton, Novak Djokovic, and Chris Paul. Wilks’ journey exposes outdated myths about food that not only affect human performance, but the health of the entire global population.  Watch the trailer online here: "The Game Changers" Trailer.

Join us for a free movie screening on Wednesday, November 20th at 7:00 pm.  A brief Q&A will follow the screening.

We're excited to offer a commemorative conference shirt to attendees this year!

This long sleeve shirt is available in sizes XS to 4XL. A soft cotton hand combines with sweat-wicking, stretchable performance to make training cooler and drier. The shirt is 5 ounce, 95/5 poly/spandex jersey, loose athletic fit with raglan sleeves.
The 2019 conference logo will be screen printed on the front of the shirt as shown in the picture to the right.

**Conference Program App** NEW THIS YEAR!

NYS AHPERD is excited to offer a conference app to our attendees this year!  Within the app, you'll be able to navigate our full program as well as view additional resources presenters have shared (i.e.: slides, videos, etc.), you'll be able to find sessions and exhibitors more quickly with the virtual maps, connect with other attendees and presenters without needing to exchange phone numbers, learn about conference program changes/cancellations almost immediately as they happen, and finally, CHECK-IN/OUT of workshops so we can electronically keep track of your CTLE hours... yay!

All attendees will still be given a conference program, however, it will be a bit smaller in size than we have given in the past.  Those who do not have an Apple or Android device or would still prefer to track their CTLE hours on the paper tracking sheets, can still do so: just indicate that below.  More information will be shared prior to the conference.
