Hello Fellow Athletic Training Programs!

Stony Brook University Athletic Training Program is organizing an event to promote NATM.

On March 4,2016, they will be going to The Today Show & on March 18th, they will be going to Good Morning America.  They will be organizing breakfasts at Ellen's Stardust Diner for both events for anyone that's interested.

For both events they will be traveling to New York City to promote NATM by standing outside the studios at either Rockefeller Plaza or Times Square donned in our university attire and carrying signs recognizing NATM and the slogans promoted by the NATA.  Each year they have gained more recognition, and have been mentioned by several of The Today Show anchors during their broadcast.

We hope that joining forces will further our endeavors and promote the profession at an even higher level.  For more information contact Julie DeMartini or Michael Dias on the CATA website.
