2022 President’s Message

Dear NSATA Membership,

Thank you for visiting the NSATA Summer Education Conference website. The NSATA Executive Board is excited about this year’s Summer Education Conference. I want to thank all our sponsors for helping make this event a success. We are excited to be able to offer the Summer Education Conference both in-person and virtually to allow more members the opportunity to participate in the great education program we have planned for this year. Many of the sessions this year do include a hands-on component, so we definitely encourage you to attend in-person to get the most out of our sessions.

On Thursday, June 2nd, join us in the afternoon as we volunteer at the Central Nebraska Humane Society in Grand Island. In 2021, a service project was introduced after Committee Day. Many of our members enjoyed participating with Habitat for Humanity for an afternoon, so a similar opportunity is once again being offered again this year. Participants can work with animals during the afternoon or help install and landscape a bench donated to the facility on behalf of the NSATA. Participants will receive a free shirt. Following the service activity on Thursday afternoon, join us at Bandits Sports Bar to enjoy some fellowship, good food and live music. Please RSVP to these events on the registration form to help us plan for you!

On Friday, June 3rd, join us for the education portion of our event. This year’s conference includes topics related to therapeutic interventions: blood flow restriction, shoulder injury, ACL rehabilitation techniques; managing environmental illnesses, such as heat stroke; and an update on our legislative efforts to enhance our Athletic Training Practice Act in Nebraska. Additionally, the Honors and Awards Committee will recognize the George F. Sullivan Athletic Trainer of the Year, NSATA Service Awards and NSATA Scholarship and Grant recipients during the NSATA Business Meeting.

We invite you to join us for another great Summer Education Conference. We are looking forward to another great Education Conference. I hope to see you either in-person or virtually for this year’s event!

Denise Marshall, ATC
NSATA President
