Lead by Dr. Michael Hudson, 4th year athletic training students recently made the annual trip to Jefferson City for the Missouri Athletic Trainers’ Association Capitol Day and ATC 425 Contemporary Topics in Athletic Training. For this trip, athletic training students and Missouri-licensed athletic trainers spoke with elected officials to educate them about athletic training and lobby for legislation supporting athletic training health care. This year, they discussed HB 882 and SB 454. These bills will update the Athletic Trainer Practice Act for Missouri so it is consistent with the practice of athletic training today.
