About the NWATA

Athletic training is practiced by athletic trainers, health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize activity and participation of patients and clients. Athletic training encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, and intervention of emergency, acute, and chronic medical conditions involving impairment,
functional limitations, and disabilities.

NWATA.org was created by the Athletic Trainers in District 10 of the NATA to help disseminate information that is critical to the issues that affect the our membership and to help educate the public about a vital group of health professionals that is working in many different venues working with the active people of all ages.

Athletic Training Student Forum & Student Presentations

Welcome to the NWATA Athletic Training Student Forum Webpage!


One of the highlights of the NWATA clinical symposium is the Athletic Training Student Forum. Students from Athletic Training Education Programs in District 10 are given time each year during the annual meeting to present research and provide instruction or methods learned to their peers.

In higher education, one of the most respected accomplishments is scholarship, or presenting information to your peers.A good presentation shows that you can research a topic, organize the information, and clearly articulate the subject matter to others in a timely manner.The Athletic Training Student Forum is a terrific opportunity for you to gain valuable experience speaking in front of your peers, and it is a great addition to your resume.You will have fun, learn a lot, and grow as a professional. Please consider presenting at this years district meeting.If you have any questions please talk to your program director or contact the NWATA  College and University Athletic Training Students’ Committee chair, Katy Pietz.
