Please congratulate the MoATA members who are being recognized for their contributions to the National Athletic Trainers’ Association. These individuals were recognized at the 67th NATA Clinical Symposia and AT Expo in Baltimore.
You may recognize these names, maybe not. You should know, however, that these individuals have worked behind the scenes to improve the practice of athletic training, improve the outcomes of our patients, and improve the work-life balance of those of us dedicated to enhancing athletic healthcare in Missouri.
The people included on this list provide athletic healthcare services to professional athletes, collegiate athletes, secondary school athletes, other physically active individuals across the lifespan, and performing artists. Many are involved in the education of the next generation of the uniquely qualified healthcare providers we know as athletic trainers.
When you see these MoATA members, congratulate them, and thank them for their service to our profession.
