Event Coincides with Association’s Convention in Baltimore

DALLAS, June 15, 2016 â€“ More than 400 National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) members from 48 states will descend on Congress on Wednesday, June 22, 2016, for the organization’s annual Capitol Hill Day in an effort to educate members of Congress about the athletic training profession and request their support in the passage of the Sports Medicine Licensure Clarity Act (H.R. 921 and S. 689). The bill protects athletic trainers and other sports medicine professionals who travel to secondary states with an athletic team to provide care for that team. Capitol Hill Day also marks the kickoff of NATA’s 67th annual convention taking place at the Baltimore Convention Center. Nearly 8,000 members of the profession are expected to attend the convention.
