#AzSafeyInSports2020     #IsYourAthleteSafe     #ATsAREhealthcare

Our Arizona athletes' safety is our number one concern and it is important to have an athletic trainer available for patient care. According to a study conducted by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the presence of athletic trainers in the secondary schools lowers overall injury rates, improves diagnosis and return-to-play decisions, and reduces the risk for recurrent injuries.
