Western Illinois University students, faculty and staff are celebrating National Athletic Training Month. To commemorate the annual event, Macomb Mayor Mike Inman signed a proclamation for the City of Macomb Thursday, March 3.
Western students studying in the athletic training program and faculty from the Department of Kinesiology were on hand for the proclamation signing March 3.
The National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) has designated March as National Athletic Training Month (NATM). According to NATA, National Athletic Training Month is held every year to spread awareness about all that athletic trainers do.
