UNC Pembroke officially incorporated the Athletic Training Student Association in the spring of 2006. The purpose of this student-led organization is three-fold:
- to promote the health and wellness of UNCP student-athletes
- to educate the campus on the fields of Sports Medicine and Athletic Training, and
- to enhance athletic training student education.
The ATSA is involved in many activities throughout the year. They have participated in the Health Fair at the Pembroke Day celebration and served as "Santa's Helpers" (pictured to the right) by offering a giftwrapping service to faculty, staff and students as a fundraiser. The ATSA is also involved in the community in events such as Relay for Life.
Students who are interested in applying for the Athletic Training Education Program are also invited to join the ATSA. The ATSA meets every other Tuesday at 7:15 pm. Contact Ms. Justice at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
