Sports Medicine Course Best Practices – 323

Here are a few people I know teach some good lessons in Sports Medicine, so take what you want and use as best you can in your situation.

Eli Hallak and Catherine Marr are academic advisers or sponsors for the National Honor Society for Sports Medicine.  Cat Marr has started the club recently to allow more of the school to participate and to continue to reward the hard working students that might not be able to make it in an honors society.

I was recently asked about Athletic Trainers gambling on sports events.  Cat Marr asked for feedback and it has prompted a discussion on Ethics.  We have recruited Timothy Neal and Cathy Supak to weigh in on the subject of Ethics in Athletic Training.
