Athletic Training Students Present At ASEATA

Friday, February 23, 2018 - by Naudia O’Steen, Lee University

Lee University athletic training students presented at the Southeast Athletic Trainers’ Association annual Athletic Training Student Symposium in Atlanta. 

“To have our students chosen to present at SEATA to over 900 AT undergraduate and graduate peers and faculty is a huge honor for our students and program,” said Dr. Taz Kicklighter, director of Lee’s athletic training education. “Their hard work and determination in their research is a trait which will make them excellent athletic trainers in the future. As we transition to a master’s degree this summer, we are setting a foundation of high quality research of which I am very proud.” 

During the three-day conference, undergraduate and graduate students were able to pick from several educational tracks to obtain AT-specific information such as foundations of athletic training and competencies, evidence-based practice, and the newest diagnostic and treatment techniques in lecture and laboratory workshop formats. 

Of the students who attended, seniors Joseph Busic and Alyssa Slagle presented original research at the conference. 

Mr. Busic presented on the long-term effects of Juvenile Idiopathic Rheumatoid Arthritis. According to Mr. Busic, this rare disease is often misdiagnosed, and he hoped to educate his peers so they would be equipped to correctly diagnosis it. 

“Presenting at SEATA was a great experience and something I am very proud of,” said Mr. Busic. “Putting my work on display for all to see was simultaneously exhilarating and terrifying. I really enjoyed the process and was honored to be chosen.” 

Ms. Slagle gave a poster presentation on a Grade III wrist flexor strain. 

“Attending SEATA is always fantastic as we get to interact with other athletic training students from around the Southeast and those who are currently shaping the profession,” said Ms. Slagle. 

SEATA is a nonprofit organization committed to enhancing the quality of healthcare provided by certified athletic trainers and to advancing the athletic training profession. The ATSS welcomes experimental research, case studies, and other research projects regarding athletic training from students seeking athletic training certification.
