2018 Capitol Hill Day
Over 75 athletic trainers from 31 states ventured to Washington, D.C., for NATA’s annual Capitol Hill Day.
More than 200 meetings with legislators and their staff took place throughout the day to discuss S. 808, the Sports Medicine Licensure Clarity Act, the House version of which (H.R. 302) was passed by Congress in January 2017.
The Capitol Hill Day visits led to 8 new cosponsors for S. 808. In addition, the meetings offered attendees the opportunity to talk one-on-one with members of congress and their staff, educating them on the athletic training profession and issues important to our members.
