On behalf of the Executive Committee of the Athletic Trainers’ Society of New Jersey, Inc. and conference committee co-chairs Mary Jane Rogers and Kenneth Cieslak, I would like to welcome you to the 37th Annual Conference and Business Meeting. As you can see this year we are switching up the locations to offer a more inclusive event in Atlantic City! The professional education committee has reviewed and collaborated to put together a diverse and dynamic educational meeting for 2023.
This year’s conference will offer a total of eight continuing education units, all qualified for the newly revised Category A credits. We are pleased to cover such topics on mental health for the patient and the clinician, emergency management, taping techniques, and concussion management to name a few. The student program is with some exciting opportunities, including a hands-on lab to engage all senses of learning for the future of our profession’s students.
As always, our conference would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. Please make a point to utilize their services and products while visiting the exhibit hall. Their support and financial investment in our organization have been vital in its success. We are excited to create more of an interactive program to a destination site to allow for more networking and engagement.
I would also like to acknowledge our conference committee members, Kenneth Cieslak, Mary Jane Rogers, Rob Sterner, Steve Barandica, Dan Evans, Ashley DeSousa, Natalie Pytlowany, Jaclyn Morrissette, and Joe Friedrich, for their dedication and efforts.
