Saluting our PT@acac Athletic Trainers during National Athletic Training Month

National Athletic Training Month (NATM) is held every March in order to spread awareness about the important work of athletic trainers.

The 2024 tagline is, "From Head to Toe".

NATM is sponsored by The National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA), the professional membership association for certified athletic trainers and others who support the athletic training profession. Founded in 1950, NATA has grown to more than 38,000 members worldwide today. The majority of certified athletic trainers choose to be members of NATA to support their profession and to receive a broad array of membership benefits.
