Each year, A.T. Still University’s (ATSU) Athletic Training Student Association (ATSA) works to identify opportunities for University and community service, and was able to participate in several interprofessional events throughout the 2018-19 academic year.

In the fall, ATSA members participated in the annual Corbin’s Legacy Back to School event held on the Mesa Campus. ATSA members worked with students from the Physical Therapy and Physician Assistant programs to develop fun fitness activities for the children to playin the “Fun Zone.” ATSA students also worked with students from other ATSU-Arizona School of Health Sciences (ATSU-ASHS) programs to provide orthopedic and movement screenings for the attendees.

The 8th annual Day for Special Smiles once again found ATSU-ATSA students volunteering their time alongside ATSU-Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health students. ATSA members provided neuromuscular screenings for all attendees, and worked closely with the dental students to promote athletic training and to learn more about the dental profession.

ATSA also provided medical coverage again this year for the Hearing Loss Association of Arizona’s Walk for Hearing. ATSA students worked with local athletic trainers from the Arizona Athletic Trainers’ Association, professional athletic training students from Grand Canyon University, and ATSU audiology students to provide healthcare services for the 5k walk. Over 350 walkers participated in the 3rdannual event.

In the spring, ATSA students worked with volunteers from ATSU-ASHS, ATSU-School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona, Midwestern University, and other schools to provide pre-participation physicals plus EKGs for underserved high school athletes in Glendale, Arizona. As part of the Team of Physicians for Students (TOPS) physicals program, ATSA students performed orthopedic screenings, and assisted with EKGs. TOPS provided more than 1300 free pre-participation screenings.
