Athletic Training Education Scholarship at Regional Conference
Contributed by Paul Geisler
Nine current athletic training majors, 1 graduate exercise science student, 2 recent athletic training alumni and 6 athletic training faculty members will be presenting peer-reviewed, collaborative research projects at the 2019 annual meeting of the Eastern Athletic Trainers' Association.
This coming weekend is the 71st EATA Annual Conference and Symposium, in Valley Forge, PA. As 5 AT Faculty and 25 AT students prepare to head to the 2019 conference, I’d like to highlight the research presence that Ithaca College will have once again on the AT profession!
The following student and faculty collaborative scholarship projects were all peer reviewed and accepted by the EATA Research Committee for presentation to the members and students of Districts 1 and 2 of the NATA, either in poster or oral communication:
