March is National Athletic Training Month. 

The UR Medicine Orthopedics and Rehabilitation department has a specialized athletic training outreach program. The program contracts with 21 local high schools. Athletic trainers must go to a four-year accredited university.

Athletic trainers are not personal trainers. They are health care professionals who work with athletes on injury prevention, rehabilitation, diagnosis and wellness.
