Athletic training students meet ATSU-ASHS alumna, newly elected state senator

May 10, 2019
Posted In: Alumni Headlines, ASHS, Athletic Training

March was National Athletic Training Month across the country. The Pennsylvania Athletic Trainers’ Society (PATS) organized its annual “Hike to Harrisburg” trip to the state’s Capitol building to celebrate National Athletic Training Month and to introduce the profession of athletic training to Pennsylvania’s lawmakers on March 18.

Gregory Janik, MS, ATC, ’00, A.T. Still University Arizona School of Health Sciences (ATSU-ASHS) alumnus organized a trip for the Pennsylvania King’s College Iota Tau Alpha Athletic Training Honor Society members to attend the PATS Hike to Harrisburg. Founded in 2005, Iota Tau Alpha serves as the only professional honors society for students pursuing a degree in athletic training.

The group met with many Pennsylvania legislators and their staff, but the highlight of the trip was meeting ATSU-ASHS alumna and newly elected Pennsylvania Senator Katie Muth, DAT, MS.

Senator Muth discussed important topics about the PATS organization, athletic trainers, legislative bills supported by PATS, and any upcoming legislation.

”Senator Muth was so passionate speaking to our students and talked about trying to reach her goals of improving the commonwealth by using her athletic trainer’s mindset,” said Dr. Janik. “When I asked my students to reflect on the day, each of them stated that the meeting Senator Muth was most memorable.”
