Athletic trainers (ATs) are highly-skilled health care professionals who work tirelessly behind the scenes to provide compassionate health care for athletes, patients, soldiers, workers and performers.
March is National Athletic Training Month (NATM), a month dedicated to raising awareness of who athletic trainers are and the impact they have on patient health and safety. National Athletic Training Month is sponsored by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA), the professional association for certified athletic trainers and others who support the athletic training profession.
This year, our theme is “ATs Impact Health Care Through Action.” ATs take action every day to reduce the risk of injury for the patient populations they serve. Should an injury occur, athletic trainers act immediately to assess, diagnose, treat and refer injuries for specialized care. After an injury, athletic trainers act to rehabilitate patients and get them back to the sport, work and life they love.
