Who said summer reading had to be fiction, anyway? Read on, you overachiever, you.

If you attended:

-the Emerging Settings reception, and/or emerging settings sessions: Check out the January 2014 cover story from NATA News on the performing arts setting on advancing dance medicine

- This year’s press conference on heat illness and youth sports safety: Read “The Game Changers” from the latest NATA News, which covers the University of Georgia’s latest research on playing high school football in the heat.
