March was National Athletic Training Month and the students in the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Athletic Training Club volunteered their time in order to both promote the profession and support the community.
The National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) selected this year’s theme, which was “Not All Athletes Wear Jerseys” to represent the wide variety of physically active patients that athletic trainers are educated to treat.
The UW Oshkosh Athletic Training Club partnered with the Oshkosh YMCA to offer free injury checks to its members on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons in March. The students were able to offer help and advice to several physically active members of our Oshkosh community (who don’t wear jerseys) throughout the month. They professionally represented the University, the athletic training education program, and the profession of athletic training, while spreading the word of National Athletic Training Month and this year’s theme.
Robert Sipes, athletic training education, submitted this announcement. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to contribute calendar items, campus announcements and other good news to UW Oshkosh Today.
