FMLA and the Athletic Trainer – 318

Who is going to take care of your athletes when you are out?  Are they going to the nurse, going left unchecked or treated?
Can an athletic trainer care for your students that is not a school employee?
Is there a legal problem with a non full-time Athletic Trainer treating patients?

Alex Ager has a partner who is about to leave for an extended time for maternity.
His options are to suck it up and work unrealistic hours and still not provide all of the care needed
Put in a little work researching and start discussions with admin to get some help.

Physeal Elbow Injuries with Dr Crumbie – 97

Physeal Injuries of The Elbow With Dr. David Crumbie – 97

Thanks to Morgan Wilson Music for allowing us to use parts of her songs.

Here is our interview with Dr. David Crumbie.  Since this recording comes from a live conference, some elements are lost due to lack of visual props and some crowd noise can be heard.  The stellar content more than makes up for the difference in sound quality.

Bob Marley allowed us to record and interview the guests of the Memorial Hermann 13th Annual Sports Medicine Update.  In the course of two days we conducted about 24 interviews, streamed live for about 16 hours, and had a lot of help from Dr. Josh Yellen, Dr. Mark Knoblauch, Bill Hale, former student / future Athletic Trainer Jazmin Dozal, and current SAT Sarah Avina.
