Capitol Hill Day

Capitol Hill Day is an excellent opportunity for members of NATA to advocate for the athletic training profession on Capitol Hill in Washington.  This is NATA’s biggest advocacy event of the year and we always need your voice so you can help us educate our politicians about athletic training.

As previously announced, the 5th National Youth Sports Safety Summit will be held on Monday-Tuesday, March 10-11, 2014 at the Westin City Center, Washington, DC. The conference will be held on Monday and on Tuesday attendees will take the message about sports safety to Capitol Hill.

This annual conference is proving to be very critical to keeping the public’s attention focused on ALL sports injuries, especially catastrophic and fatal events. Attendance will help educate policymakers and the public about sudden cardiac arrest, exertional heat illness and sickling, cervical spine and organ injuries, as well as concussion. We will continue to promote the National Action Plan for Sports Safety and the Student Athletes’ Bill of Rights.

The agenda is not finalized but it will concentrate on research and best practices for clinicians, as well as successful advocacy efforts.
We would be happy to feature your organization’s activities; please let us know if you wish to bring material to hand out or possibly present at a “how to” breakout.
To register for this important meeting, please visit www.grires.com/natashowchd14.htm. The registration deadline is February 14th. NATA housing is sold out.

You will be offered the opportunity to register for both events or separately for the Summit or Capitol Hill Day. If you have any questions about registration, please  contact us at judyp@nata.org.
