  1. Welcome to Our New Member: Dustin Grooms, Ohio University; Lee Weidauer, South Dakota State University; Elizabeth Parke, University of Hawaii; Samantha Andrews, University of Hawaii
  2. The Executive Committee is having their next quarterly call on March 7, 2016 at 10:00 (ET). Contact Jeff Driban for call-in details.
  3. On behalf of ATOAC, the Executive Committee agreed to sign the Arthritis Foundation’s Letter of Support to ask Congress to designate a $20 million stand-alone arthritis program within the DoD Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (4 votes supported the motion, 1 vote abstained).
  4. Show your support for recent efforts to raise awareness and research funding to address the growing burden arthritis is placing on our active duty military personnel and veterans.
  5. In the first 8 weeks of 2016 ATOAC members have offered 9 osteoarthritis-related lectures.
  6. Please let ATOAC members know about your talks and news coverage of your work. It’s a great way for the Consortium to highlight how athletic trainers are raising awareness and advancing research. Email Jeff Driban any updates.

ATOAC Annual Meeting

The ATOAC Annual Meeting will be held on Tuesday June 21st at the Baltimore Convention Center from 8:00am – 12:00pm. If you plan on attending this free event please register by contacting Brian Pietrosimone ASAP. We have attached our tentative schedule and we are excited about focusing discussion around two specific topics (1. Biomarkers and OA and 2. Neuromuscular Alterations following Joint Injury) that have been recommended by the membership.

We will be soliciting abstracts for consideration to be presented during brief 10 minute presentations prior to a panel like discussion (see attached tentative schedule).  We would ask if you have a short presentation on a project that you are working on or have completed that fits these topic to please send in a short abstract to Brian Pietrosimone by April 15th.  The abstract should be ~ 200 words with (Background, Aims, Methods, Results and Conclusion).
