Athletic trainers across America are being recognized for their many contributions to helping people prevent injuries, and staying healthy and active. Athletic trainers are health care professionals who can be found helping people at high school, college, and professional sports events; assisting at corporate, military, and performing arts activities, and providing services at medical clinics, hospitals, and physician offices.
Franklin College’s Head Athletic Trainer Chris Shaff was honored as the 2013 Athletic Trainer of the Year, by the Indiana Athletic Training Association. He works with the baseball team during the spring athletics season.
