NATA 2016 Recap
It was a great week in Baltimore and it was great to see CT so well represented at the meeting this year. On Wednesday, James Doran, Jeff Shanley, and Vicky Graham traveled to Washington DC for Capitol Hill Day. There they met with Senators Blumenthal and Murphy's offices and Representatives DeLauro and Larson's offices to discuss SR 689 and HR 921, the Sports Medicine Clarity Act. This act will allow athletic trainers' liability insurance to cover them across state lines. On Friday, NATA President Scott Sailor introduced 2 new NATA programs. The first is ATs Care, which is a program to offer aid to those athletic trainers involved in a catastrophic incident. The other is AT Your Own Risk which is a website that offers education about athletic trainers and reducing risk in Health, Sport, and Work. Also during that Session, Vicky Graham and John Gilmour received the NATA Service Award and Stephanie Mazerolle received the NATA Fellow. We look forward to seeing many of you in Houston.
