The Institute of Exercise Physiology and Rehabilitation Science held its second annual conference on Friday and Saturday. The two-day hybrid conference took place in the Fairwinds Alumni Center, as opposed to the one-day first annual conference that was held via Zoom. The conference had a series of 13 guest speakers, all with varying medical backgrounds that brought researchers, clinicians, practitioners and students from all over the world together. 

Although the general theme is the same as the first annual conference, the elements of this year's conference make it more compelling than the last, Director of IEPRS Matt Stock said. The IEPRS held its first-ever pre-registration event, the Lab Crawl. The Lab Crawl was a behind-the-scenes look into the technology that is used when conducting research in the field. 

The 2022 IEPRS conference also included the first-ever speech in the world to be given by hologram technologies, Dean of Associate Affairs Bari Hoffman said. The hologram technology was used to beam in this year's keynote speaker, Dr. Robert Newton, to the Fairwinds Alumni Center. Newton was beamed in from Perth, Australia.
