Help For ATs Affected By Florence

September 20, 2018 by Todd Christman

Our thoughts are with the NATA members and their families who have been affected by Hurricane Florence.

NATA’s ATs Care Committee is available to aid ATs in the aftermath of a catastrophic incident or death occurring to one or more of their athletes or colleagues by establishing a peer-to peer-system to assist, monitor and encourage these individuals to seek initial support through state or regional athletic training care teams. If you or someone you know would like to get in touch with one of our ATs Care committee members, please email the committee at Someone will be in touch with you within 24 hours. You can also call the ATs Care Hotline at 972-532-8821.
