SEATA Symposium 2013
Every year, the Southeast Athletic Trainer’s Association conducts a symposium for athletic training students. This year, two first-year students and five second-year students accompanied Dr. Ray Castle and Meghan Reid to the symposium in Atlanta, Georgia. Eduardo Godoy and Benjamin Morale were selected to give oral case study presentations and Meaghan Hussey and Tamaria Hollis presented their case studies via posters. These students were selected from a pool of applications by a selection committee and presented their case studies to their peers during the conference. First-year students participated in lectures about concussion assessment and diagnostic testing and labs involving core stability and emergency management. Second-year students received advice about career opportunities and writing a resume and gained hands on experience with joint mobilizations and kinesiotape in labs. Students were able to once again connect with peers from Quinnipiac University and compare educational programs. Great job students!
