US BONE & JOINT INITIATIVE
Paul Ullucci is NATA’s rep to the US Bone and Joint Initiative’s board of directors. NATA was a major sponsor of the US Bone & Joint Decade, of which this is an outgrowth. At the USBJI’s latest board meeting, Ullucci petitioned for NATA representation on a task force looking at chronic osteoarthritis treatment. Athletic trainers’ role and expertise in early detection, injury assessment, rehab and prevention were emphasized and welcomed.
