March is National Athletic Training Month.
Athletic Trainers are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide emergency care and prevention, diagnose and treat injuries and medical conditions for people in work, life, and play including athletes, industrial workers, military service members and public servants. Highly educated and dedicated to their jobs, Athletic Trainers can be found in high schools, colleges, corporations, professional sports, the military, performing arts, clinics, hospitals, and physician offices. During March, Athletic Trainers across America are being recognized for their commitment to helping people by providing compassionate care for all. Athletic Trainers are Health Care Professionals.
The Athletic Training Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CaATe), 6850 Austin Center Blvd., Suite 100, Austin, TX 78731-3184, (512.733.9700).
