The 7th International Ankle Symposium is scheduled for Sept 15-17, 2017 at the Carolina Union in Chapel Hill, NC.  The Symposium Program is worth up to 16 Category A CEUs and includes lecture and learning lab presentations from internationally renowned speakers.  Presentations will review the epidemiology and long-term consequences, injury screening and prevention techniques, surgical considerations, and the latest rehabilitation paradigms for lateral ankle sprains and chronic ankle instability. 

NATA has developed a public awareness campaign, At Your Own Risk, aimed specifically at educating parents, student athletes, school administrators, legislators and employers on the athletic trainer's role as an expert in prevention and safety. A recently produced video provides an overview of this initiative and information on how you can help support it. Help us spread the word! READ MORE
