EDAC Seeks Volunteers for New Initiative
The Ethnic Diversity Advisory Council (EDAC) is offering athletic trainers in our District an opportunity to participate in an initiative designed to recruit and retain ethnical diverse individuals to careers in athletic training. Coalitions between government agencies, community groups, colleges and universities and other allied health professionals are currently forming in an effort to achieve these goals. Programs are currently underway in North and South Carolina.
Volunteers will be asked to assist or lead programs in their regions to engage students by means of lectures, workshops, electronic mentoring and/or other creative means. Active and positive certified athletic trainers of all ethnic
backgrounds are desired.
