March, 2019, is National Athletic Training Month: ATs Are Health Care. This is a month we use to spread awareness of what athletic trainers and the importance of the work we do. Again this year it especially important in New York State as we continue to strive for the update to our practice act.
We will be holding twitter and meme contests. Each tweet and meme earns the individual an entry into a drawing for an AED sized FOOBAG, kindly donated by Craig LoNigro. We have two bags that will be given away. Tweets & memes must contain the hashtags: #NATM2019, #ATsAreHealthCare, and #NYSATA_NATM2019, to be eligible for prizes (Must be a NYSATA member to win) You can gain an additional entry by submitting proof of your getting your NPI number this month. Email confirmation of your NPI number for entry.
We are also hosting our annual ATEP video contest. Videos are posted below for your enjoyment, education, and voting. Voting will be open until end of the month.
