Athletic Training and Public Health Summit.
OBJECTIVE: To introduce athletic trainers to the benefits of using a population-based approach to injury and illness prevention and to explore opportunities for partnering with public health professionals on these initiatives. BACKGROUND: Athletic trainers play leading roles in individual injury and illness prevention but are less familiar with policy development, evaluation, and implementation from a population-level standpoint. The Athletic Training and Public Health Summit was convened to understand, explore, and develop the intersection of athletic training and public health. CONCLUSIONS: To further the integration of athletic training within the public health arena, athletic trainers must expand their professional focus beyond the individual to the population level.
