EKU Faculty Represented in Force at TATS

EKU Faculty Dr. Sciascia Presents to the Tennessee Athletic Trainers' Society

The annual meeting & clinical symposium of the Tennessee Athletic Trainers' Society (TATS) occured this year on January 19-20. Located on the campus of Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, clinicians and educators from Tennessee and surrounding states met to learn about the newest techniques, procedures, and clinical practices as part of their continuing education. Two of EKU's MS in Athletic Training Program's faculty, Dr. Fuchs and Dr. Sciascia, presented a total of five sessions at the meeting to contribute to the current knowledge base. 


Dr. Fuchs presented a featured lecture on establishing IV access as athletic trainers and then led three labs to practice the skills. He will be continuing to present this EBP continuing education course with hands-on application across the nation in the next year with multiple speaking engagements planned. Dr. Sciascia continued to educate clinicians about shoulder examination practices, specifically focusing on rotator cuff evaluation. His presentation was also catagorized as an evidence-based practice session. In addition to catching these presentations at future conferences at the state, district and national levels...EKU is starting to provide online continuing education courses as an approved provider for the Board of Certification. More on access to these resources will be coming out in the near future!


EKU Athletic Training is honored to have Dr. Fuchs and Dr. Sciascia represent the program and profession most recently at the 2019 TATS Conference and beyond!
