Geisler, EdD, ATC was invited to speak to the Athletic Training Education programs at the University of Texas, Arlington. UTA Director, and former IC faculty member and athletic trainer, Cindy Trowbridge, PhD, ATC invited Dr. Geisler to speak on his research on clinical reasoning and athletic training practice to the undergraduate and graduate students, as well as the faculty of both programs.
