Jennifer Moshak, athletic trainer of the University of Tennessee Lady Vols basketball team and author of “Ice n Go: Score in Sports and Life,” will speak at the Thursday, June 6, meeting of the Knoxville Writers’ Guild.

The event, which is open to the public, begins at 7 p.m. at the Laurel Theater. A $2 donation is requested at the door.

In “Ice n Go,” Moshak reflects on the role of sports in society and addresses the high stakes and costs of winning in sports today.

Moshak is also director for sports medicine and an adjunct professor in the kinesiology department at the University of Tennessee at UT. The U.S.A. Olympic Committee cited Moshak for “Outstanding Athletic Training Support” at the United States Olympic Festival.

“Ice n Go” draws on the broad scope of knowledge and perspective that Moshak gained in more than 25 years of work in major college sports. She addresses social issues, medical concerns, motivational techniques, gender roles and, the impact of sports on children. She also reveals how the body works, heals, and recovers. Her book offers strategies for improving the athletic experience, especially for youth.
