LSU Was Well Represented at SEATA Student Symposium

The Southeast Athletic Trainers’ Association (SEATA) recently hosted their 25th Annual Student Symposium this February 4th-6th in Atlanta, GA. Each year SEATA invites undergraduate Athletic Training Students to submit a case study for possible presentation at the symposium. The 25 authored case studies which were selected provided a 15 minute summary of the case in moderated poster presentation sessions at the symposium. The pre-selected top 15 from the 25 presented their case studies in an oral presentation session. Here at LSU, we were pleased to have the largest representation from District IX presenting this year. Of the 25 selected case studies to be presented, 5 Athletic Training Students were chosen from LSU.

The LSU Athletic Training Students which were chosen to give an oral and poster presentation to 750+ attendees were:
