Celebrating Athletic Trainer Month

During the month of March, athletic trainers across the country will be recognized for their commitment to helping people prevent injuries and stay healthy and active. Athletic trainers are health care professionals who are highly educated and dedicated to the job at hand. Athletic trainers can be found in high schools and colleges, corporations, professional sports, the military, performing arts and clinics, hospitals and physician offices.

At Georgia State, we are lucky to have an excellent staff of full-time and graduate assistant athletic trainers who take care of all of our student-athletes year-round. Fans may only see them on the sidelines at games, but this group can also be found at every practice as well, arriving early to give treatment to the student-athletes and staying late to make sure they are ready for the next game.

This year’s theme is “We Prepare-You Perform. “It focuses on the varied ways athletic trainers prepare for anything and everything so their athletes, patients, performers, etc., do not have to worry about anything but performing at their best.

Show your support by “liking” the National Athletic Training Month 2015 Facebook page or tweet a favorite moment where your Georgia State Athletic Trainer prepared you to perform. Pictures are encouraged. Make sure you add the hashtag #natm2015.
