North Carolina and Kevin King are killing State Advocacy

Currently an assistant Athletic Trainer for the Carolina Panthers, Kevin King has helped lead North Carolina to many great achievements in State advocacy and PR.

Kevin is a co-chair of the NCAT PR committee

In the interview, Alisha discusses the Ballerina Project with Kevin and where they partnered with a dance studio and photographed dancers to create injury prevention posters and videos.

State Advocacy with Kevin King

Kevin King is a Bowtie Guy

One of the NCATA flags was made into a bowtie and sold as a limited edition fundraiser for part of their state advocacy efforts.

While chatting with Kevin after the podcast People were asking where they could get one, but as he said, they are limited edition.

You can find your own style with The Two Guys Bowtie

Life Balance

I recently interviewed an NFL AT and the biggest concern was life balance and raising a family.

Alisha and Kevin King are both life balance people. We try not to use work/ life balance because work is part of your life that needs to stay in balance. trying to completely separate them causes more problems.

A few tips from Kevin:

  • Start with a solid staff understanding
  • When at home, be at home
  • A partner you can connect with is EVERYTHING

Mike Hopper Talks Celebrity Status 360

John Harmon grabs Mike Hopper for an interview.  Mike is a very vocal advocate for Athletic Training.  He is very passionate about our profession and it shows in EVERYTHING he does.
On a side note John and I were walking with Mike after the interview towards the exit and he got stopped.  After a few minutes Mike said you guys can go… we were dismissed from the entourage of AT greatness.
We are broadcasting live from the 2017 NATA expo in Houston Texas.
We used Facebook live to stream as many of the NATA 2017 Expo Interviews as possible.
Thanks Frio Hydration and DragonFly MAX for your hospitality.
