March is National Athletic Training Month

March is National Athletic Training Month! This month is dedicated to raising awareness and 
appreciation to the services Athletic Trainers provide. They are certified health care 
professionals that coordinate care with physicians and other allied care providers (nearly 70% 
have a master’s degree or doctorate). In essence, Athletic Trainers improve overall physical and 
functional outcomes of patients! They are responsible for the prevention, diagnosis, and 
treatment of emergency, acute and chronic medical conditions involving impairment, functional 
limitations, and disability. Athletic Trainers are employed in schools, clinics, and even the 
military. In recognition of their dedication and hard work be sure to thank the next Athletic 
Trainer you see!
