Sailor had dinner with NSU faculty and preceptors as well as NATA Hall of Famers Larry Starr, M.Ed., ATC, LAT, head trainer and NSU adjunct professor, and Frank Walters, Ph.D. LAT ATC, director, Broward Health of Sports Medicine and Wellness.
Sailor spent the next day meeting with all levels of the Athletic Training (AT) Program, discussing the many initiatives put forth by the NATA, and responding to questions raised by athletic training students. NSU AT student organization president, Leon Pratt said, “It was great to have the NATA President Scott Sailor come visit our program to see what we are all so proud of”.
