Good evening Fellows,

I am on my way back from Utah and had a chance to stop at the hospital conference room we will be using for the Fellowship portion of the 2021 Spine Management Conference West, August 6-8, 2021.  Here are a two pictures of the room.  As you can see space is limited and this invite is on a first come, first serve basis.  There area already 6 spaces taken for Fellowship faculty of NSMG.  We will be having high level guest speakers in the fields of neurosurgery, pain management, chiropractic, spinal biomechanics and neuroradiology.  The detailed agenda will be out shortly.

One of our speakers, Dr. Anton Bowden has been gracious enough to speak at our Friday event.  Dr. Lee and I had an opportunity to meet with him on Wednesday.  Here is his bio and below that is the link to his Google Scholar page, he will be lecturing on “The Structure and Function of Healthy and Damaged Spinal Ligaments”.

Anton E. Bowden loves BYU and especially his interactions with the students in the Mechanical Engineering Department! His background and research interests are in spinal biomechanics, medical device design, computational biomechanics, and engineering leadership education. He directs the BYU Applied Biomechanics Engineering Laboratory. He received his PhD in Bioengineering from University of Utah and his BS in Mechanical Engineering from Utah State University. He is a licensed professional engineer and a recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER Award. He is grateful to have been awarded the Weidman Professorship in Leadership and enjoys serving in various committee capacities for the Orthopaedic Research Society. He speaks Spanish with moderate fluency and is currently trying to learn Mandarin Chinese. He and his wife Jennifer love learning and traveling with their children and live in Lindon, Utah.
