March is National Athletic Trainers Month




What an important role the Athletic Trainer can play in your life or that of your child’s. I recently met a local Athletic Trainer who helped to save the life of a high school female basketball player by using an AED & CPR. Athletic Trainers do save lives. The Jacksonville Sports Medicine Program is hosting it’s annual Symposium at Brooks & Everbank Field April 11-12. Experts will share the latest on concussion, C-spine management, asthma, sickle cell, and more. Certainly this is a premier educational opportunity. More info at Athletic Trainers celebrate National Athletic Trainers Month with the theme “We’ve got your back.”  Join us March 27th at JSMP at 6:30 for a tailgate dinner and educational program on “The Spine and Sports.”  Say hello to retiring Jaguar Athletic Trainer Mike Ryan as he move on to new adventures.
