Daniel Young and Cat Marr were the host city delegates for NATA Houston. We get a chance to see what its like to host the NATA convention, share some wisdom for future delegates and brag on Houston a little.
If you teach Sports Medicine in the secondary setting then you likely have been with curriculum support. In a way that is great and allows you to make or create anything you want. But on the same hand you must either create everything or beg borrow and steal it from somewhere else.
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.
There is also a student version of the old BOC test- www.aacitest.com Your students could take the test and qualify compete at nationals.
about NHSSM Just kept rolling so I split the other two topics into a separate episode.
Eli Hallak started the NHSSM
to help gain recognition for his Sports Medicine Students. His Classes kept growing and he was able to justify hiring another athletic trainer to help teach the classes and work the events.
He has had students get into college ATEP programs based on involvement and activity in NHSSM.
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.
