Be a part of a collective group of focused individuals that are united in the mission of PRiSM. As the PRiSM Society grows from its infancy phase, we invite you to take this journey with us and make this society a unique network of resources.
Recognizing that diversity within the membership is essential to being an inclusive, effective, and influential multi-specialty research society, the Pediatric Research in Sports Medicine society (PRiSM) is committed to: (1) creating a culture within the PRiSM community that encourages and values diversity; (2) building both a membership and a leadership of PRiSM that are reflective of the communities that we represent, study, and care for; and (3) supporting research efforts that recognize the importance of diversity by investigating and reporting differences in sex, gender, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation.
