International Athletic Training – 446

Mark Gibson is currently the head of the International Committee and is looking at ways to expand the reach of Athletic Training outside of the US borders.  There are lots of opportunities for ATs to volunteer, intern or work out side the US right now.  Mark first joined the Sports Medicine Broadcast while on site at NATA Houston and is coming back to tell us even more.
