March is National Athletic Training Month. Athletic Trainers are highly qualified, multi-faceted allied health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. Athletic trainers work under the direction of a physician as appropriate under licensure in Arizona. Only 37% of public high schools nationally have a full-time athletic trainer to focus on the healthcare of their student-athlete population, but Phoenix Union is fortunate to have 11 athletic trainers, one at each comprehensive high school, to provide service to our thousands of student athletes day in and day out.
