Additional prevention and risk management strategies undertaken by the AT range from on-site reviews for hazards, monitoring environmental conditions and educating participants on nutrition and performance enhancing drugs to monitoring for overtraining, maintenance of clinical and treatment areas, and development of emergency action plans. This is a year-round position to support the schools, students and community we serve.
