Testimonials

 

“As an Athletic Trainer and healthcare professional, I support the National Athletic Trainers Association Political Action Committee as the only legal source in educating the public about healthcare safety in work, life and sport. Through voluntary contributions from NATA members, the NATAPAC provides resources to influence public opinion and policy in support of athletic trainers and those who receive appropriate healthcare. With over 45,000 athletic trainers providing health care services to physically active people, I am privileged to be a member on the NATAPAC Board of Directors. My lifetime goal is to be an advocate for all athletic trainers who mitigate the risk of athletic injuries and medical conditions. Will you join me by supporting the NATAPAC today?”

“Since its inception, NATAPAC has served our profession as a beacon of assuring our place in the allied health world with education, advocacy and legislative actions! Supporting NATAPAC allows me to give back to the athletic training profession that has provided for me and my family for over 40+ years.”

Mark Letendre, ATC
Director of Umpire Medical Services, Office of the Commissioner, Major League Baseball

“If you have ever received a paycheck for being an Athletic Trainer, then you should contribute to the NATAPAC. It is a way to provide support to our AT colleagues as well as the non-ATs who support our profession!  Having a PAC that is backed by the membership allows us to have a presence on Capitol Hill so we can continue to advocate for our profession and the best care for our patients.”

Cari Wood, ATC
Former D10 District Director

“When we founded NATAPAC we were looking for athletic training patriots. The search for these patriots continues but the need is even more critical than ever. Every athletic trainer should think about becoming an athletic trainer patriot by taking a stand by supporting NATA’s legislative initiatives by supporting NATAPAC.”

Chuck Kimmel, LAT, ATC
Appalachian State University

“The NATAPAC provides us a means to VOICE our collective opinions in order to promote the profession of Athletic Training. In today’s dynamic and often troubling healthcare environment, NATAPAC is positioned well to protect the rights of Athletic Trainers and to promote the value of the services rendered by them to our elected officials in congress. Without the NATAPAC individual Athletic Trainers would have no way to counteract and contradict the many voices trying to limit or even prevent the practice of Athletic Training. I have been donating to the NATAPAC since its inception and was honored to be asked to join its inaugural board of directors by then President Kimmel. I firmly believe that its efforts help Athletic Trainers in every setting!”
