Sports Medicine Outreach Program Allows Athletic Trainers  to Work with Two Schools in the Greater Triangle Area

Through EmergeOrtho’s Sports Medicine Outreach Program, each Athletic Trainer works with at least two schools in the greater Triangle area.  We are proud to be involved with Wake Forest schools!

National Athletic Trainers Month recognizes the important work that ATC’s do to ensure the safety and health of student athletes in the community.  They work closely with the students and coaches at practices and games, and ensure that any injuries are appropriately addressed.
