The Anatomy of Sports
The National Museum of Health and Medicine
The National Museum of Health and Medicine in Silver Spring, Md., held its Anatomy of Sports program on August 11, 2012. The event taught attendees about the muscle groups athletes use while playing their sports, as well as common sports injuries and how they can be prevented. Medical illustrators were on hand to paint on the athletes' bodies as they demonstrated the movements and positions they use to play their sports.
