The theme for March 2019 is “AT’s are Health Care”. In essence, we want people “to realize we are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide emergency care and prevent, diagnose and treat injuries and medical conditions for people in work, life and play including athletes, industrial workers, military service members and public servants”(1).
National Athletic Training Month, and the theme NATA has chosen, “provides an opportunity to shed light on the many contributions athletic trainers have made, and continue to make, in areas such as research, innovation and patient care, and contributions that cross a variety of settings – from sports to the military – throughout the U.S. and abroad”(2).
