Emory University Head Athletics Trainer John Dunham has been named as one of 32 collegiate athletic trainers from across the country appointed to the National Athletic Trainers’ Association’s (NATA) newly formed Intercollegiate Council for Sports Medicine (ICSM), which held its inaugural meeting in Houston, Texas, on June 26, 2017. The first council of its kind, the ICSM aims to address student athlete health issues at the national level through a unique organizational structure that includes athletic trainers from NCAA Divisions I, II and III; NAIA; and the community colleges. Dunham is one of four NCAA Division III representatives on the Council.
“We are extremely pleased to have John join this esteemed group of sports medicine professionals,” said NATA President Scott Sailor, EdD, ATC. “We look forward to the council’s work with the NCAA and other national organizations to ensure that student athletes receive the best possible health care through new policies and resources.”
The ICSM meeting was held in conjunction with the 68th National Athletic Trainers’ Association Clinical Symposia & AT Expo, featuring hundreds of educational sessions and the largest exhibition of athletic training products and services in the world.
