WHEELING, Ill. – Athletic trainers from Parkview Sports Medicine are joining several hundreds of others in their profession for the Great Lakes Athletic Trainers' Association Annual Meeting & Symposium in Chicagoland.
This year’s gathering, which started Wednesday and runs through Saturday, allows athletic trainers from across the Great Lakes region of the country to come together in March--National Athletic Training Month--and look at areas of medical treatment, diagnosis and patient care.
On Thursday, two athletic trainers from Parkview Sports Medicine were selected to present at the GLATA meeting. Athletic Training Manager Candice Dunkin, MS, LAT, ATC, and Care Navigator/Athletic Trainer Lead Ashley Emerson, LAT, ATC, spoke about PSM’s integrative sports medicine model, which discussed Parkview Sports Medicine’s approach to preventative services, therapeutic interventions and emergency care.
Parkview Sports Medicine’s athletic training program started in 1990 as SportONE. Over the next 25 years, the program grew exponentially before acquisition by Parkview Ortho Hospital in 2015.
