Public Safety Athletic Trainer – 344

Interested in working with the police, fire fighters, or military as an Athletic Trainer?

PSAT is a great place to start gathering information on how you can help make our civil servants healthier and more effective.

Deena Kilpatrick saw a need for Firefighters to have an Athletic Trainer and built a business proposal, kept after the city admin and eventually got the opportunity to pitch it.

Currently 1.5 years into the gig they are looking into expanding and adding another staff member.  Another great story of Athletic Trainers doing what it takes but not settling for good enough.

USA Rugby: No AT Means No Match – 340

USA Rugby required any sanctioned event have a Doctor, Athletic Trainer, or Paramedic onsite for the duration of the event or the matches will be cancelled.  Charlie Wund and InjureFree were able to help make this happen by tracking injuries and showing trends.

The best data to have is actionable data.  Use what you have and start making changes or talking about it.  As the data grows then adjust and incorporate the new findings.
