Sports Medicine: Athletic Training

T.L. Hanna’s athletic training staff is responsible for the care of each student-athlete on campus. Athletic Trainers are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians. The services provided by Athletic Trainers compromise prevention, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. Athletic Trainers work under the direction of physicians, as prescribed by state licensure. T. L. Hanna has two full-time Athletic Trainers.
