MoATA Wraps Up a Successful Meeting in St. Louis

Saint Louis University was proud to be selected to host the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Missouri Athletic Trainers' Association on May 31 and June 1, 2013.  SLU Athletic Training faculty member Kitty Newsham, who is also President-Elect of MoATA, coordinated the meeting which included a full weekend of fellowship and professional development!  

The great resources available at SLU allowed for an interactive meeting.
The SLU AT Program team also pitched in some manner at the meeting.  Administrative assistant Jennifer Baine was important behind the scenes preparing for the meeting. On friday May 31st faculty member Mike Markee and physician Scott Kaar presented on hip rehabilitation and pathology, on Saturday, June 1st faculty member Lori Khazen presented on muscle imbalance, physician Matt Bayes presented on general medical examination and 2013 MAT graduates Bridget Quirk and Rachel Cocek participated in case study presentations.

SLU AT Program Director Tony Breitbach helped provide local coordination of the tailgate fundraiser at Busch Stadium on Friday and the Saint Louis University Athletic Training Society (SLATS) hosted a breakfast fundraiser on Saturday.  SLATS members who got up early to work the breakfast included Andria Lampe, Jay Maturan, Jose Mendez, Kyle Marquitz and Michael Sickels.

The well attended Friday Tailgate fundraiser had a great location, protected from the inclement weather that cancelled the Cardinals game that night.
