The summit, which will be conducted at Harvard Medical School, will convene leading clinicians, researchers and safety advocates to speak about youth sports health and safety best practices. Prof. Abrams will discuss the “power of the permit,” local government’s authority to restrict use of fields, gymnasiums and other public facilities to private sports organizations that adhere to mandated safety protocols.
