For the last time before the NATA presidential election closes, candidates Kathy Dieringer, EdD, LAT, ATC, and Katie Walsh Flanagan, EdD, LAT, ATC, went live to answer member-submitted questions during Face Time ’20 at the 2020 NATA Virtual Clinical Symposia & AT Expo July 15. 

Each candidate presented their presidential platform and fielded questions read by NATA President Tory Lindley, MA, ATC. The questions, submitted by NATA members, covered various topics and issues including education, international recognition, government affairs and handling crises and social movements. A recording of Face Time is available on the NATA Facebook page.
