Georgia Southern Salutes Athletic Trainers Who Keep Athletes in the Game
Students in Georgia Southern University’s Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) have planned two events in March to celebrate National Athletic Training Month as they prepare for careers in preventing, assessing, treating and rehabilitating injuries and illnesses.
On Monday, March 5 at 7 p.m., the Georgia Southern ATEP senior class will offer an emergency management simulation course in the main gym at Hanner Fieldhouse. Organizers say the program will focus on iSTAN, a life-like patient simulator used to teach diagnosis and treatment. Certified athletic trainers can receive two CEU credits for attending.
On March 10 at 1:30 p.m., celebrate Athletic Training Appreciation Day with a baseball game at J.I. Clements Stadium as the Eagles face Wofford. Georgia Southern fans can get their blood pressure checked or body composition assessed during the game. Discounted tickets are available for certified athletic trainers for $4, and they will be recognized during the baseball game.
