Another highlight of one of our amazing alumni!

Todays AT Spotlight is Josh Masner working out of Payson High School.

He was quoted saying "The town of Payson has gone through multiple years with various Athletic Trainers as well as other healthcare professionals stepping in to care for the student-athletes. The student-athletes and families needed someone they could get to know and could rely on to be there specifically for their kid’s health. My goal has been to provide not only what these student-athletes need, but also what they deserve, regardless of school size. Payson needed someone who is invested in helping their student-athletes and

Happy National Athletic Training Month!

This month we celebrate ATs and their contributions to the greater healthcare community.

Throughout March, we aim to highlight some of the essential but less discussed actions ATs perform that help push our profession forward.


Mark your calendars!!

25 medical personnel saved Damar Hamlin's life. Many high school athletes are lucky to have 1. What if Hamlin’s survival becomes a catalyst to get every high school athlete access to an athletic trainer?

What would it cost to do that elsewhere? What innovative partnerships exist to make this happen? And, where that’s not possible due to financial or personnel reasons, what other options exist to save lives and care for young athletes’ health?

Join The Aspen Institute March 30 for this discussion. Speakers include NFL Executive Vice President Jeff Miller and Korey Stringer Institute CEO Douglas Casa.
