PATS STUDENT SYMPOSIUM
April 17, 2021
Lock Haven University
The Lock Haven University Athletic Training students and faculty are excited to virtually host this year's Student PATS Symposium on Mental Health Awareness in Sports Medicine - SATURDAY, APRIL 17TH!
This event is completely FREE! You simply provide your contact information, and we will send you a link the week of the event so that you can join us that day.
Mental health issues are far more common than previously thought, and the stigma often associated with them is being replaced with healthcare workers becoming acutely alert of potential signs and symptoms. Athletic trainers (and athletic training students) are in a unique position to be at the forefront and initiate a plan of care for these conditions.
