MISSOURI ATHLETIC TRAINERS' ASSOCIATION
Established in 1984 MoATA is now on Facebook!
Athletic training is practiced by athletic trainers, health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize activity and participation of patients and clients. Athletic training encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, and intervention of emergency, acute, and chronic medical conditions involving impairment, functional limitations, and disabilities.
