Thank you once again for joining us in this effort!
All across the state of Oklahoma, athletic trainers are providing their clinical skill and expertise each and every day to improve the overall health and safety of their athletes. According to a study conducted by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the presence of athletic trainers in the secondary schools lowers overall injury rates, improves diagnosis and return-to-play decisions, and reduces the risk for recurrent injuries. In other words, Safety in Athletics begins with having an Athletic Trainer.
