On Monday, February 25th we need your help regarding Senate Bill 247, the bill updating the Missouri Athletic Trainer Practice Act. This initiative has been several years in the making. We need your physician and/or supportive physicians to send a letter of support to the seven senators who sit on the Professional Registration Committee: Senators Riddle, Cunningham, Arthur, Sifton, Sater, Burlison, and Wieland. We have a template for the physician to use, print out on letterhead, sign, and send via e-mail to the seven senate offices.


This process is moving very fast and we need the support of the physicians we work with on a daily basis! We need your physicians to send these letters FIRST THING MONDAY MORNING on 2/25/2019. It is vital that we have physician support for this bill from all four corners of the state. Ultimately, this bill will not be successful without your efforts. You are the vital link in this process.
