Aaron Sciascia Elected President-Elect of ASSET
EKU's newest addition to the Athletic Training faculty, Aaron Sciascia, was nominated and elected as President-Elect of the American Society of Shoulder and Elbow Therapists (ASSET) at their most recent meeting. ASSET is a group of approximately 100 clinicians and researchers from multidisciplinary backgrounds who specialize in delivering evidence-based clinical care and outcomes-oriented research of the shoulder and elbow regions. This group, stemming from the fields of athletic training, occupational therapy and physical therapy, has strict membership guidelines requiring continual contributions to the body of knowledge related to shoulder and elbow evaluation and rehabilitation through direct patient contact, clinical research, or a combination of both. Priding itself on disseminating the highest level of research and recognized as being comprised of experts in shoulder and elbow care, ASSET works to transform that knowledge into clinical practice.
