NC State's Rozanski Joins Board of Directors of National Athletic Trainers' Association

DALLAS (June 12, 2003) - Charlie Rozanski, ATC, will begin his term on the board of directors for the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA) at the end of June. He is a certified athletic trainer and is director of sports medicine with North Carolina State University in Raleigh. In his new role, Rozanski will represent NATA's district 3, which includes Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, DC. A former member of NATA's College/University Athletic Trainers' Committee and district secretary for the past six years, Rozanski looks forward to broadening his experience as a board member. "Having the opportunity to be involved in the policy making for our national association is exciting," Rozanski said. "There's a lot of very knowledgeable people on that board of directors, and I'm looking forward to hearing what they have to say and trying to get a feel for how I can best help the organization. My job is to build a consensus within our district and to project the opinions and attitudes of our district to the rest of the country," he added. Now in his 11th year at North Carolina State University, Rozanski said he has always enjoyed the collegiate atmosphere. The education reform, he said, has affected the profession profoundly, particularly in colleges. "As a practicing athletic trainer in the college setting, I've been very interested in the education reform and in how that will impact our ability to deliver services to student athletes," Rozanski said. "We're going through a major change philosophically. The implementation is creating challenges, but it's worth it."
