Stanford AT Presents at Expanding Your Horizons

On March 2, 2014 Katie Susskind of Stanford Sports Medicine presented at Expanding Your Horizons, a conference held in Berkeley, CA designed to introduce middle school girls to careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. She spoke about what a career in athletic training and sports medicine entails and also about how a strong education in math and science helped her achieve her career goals. After a short 20 minute presentation, she showed the girls how to tape an ankle, held tape ripping races, showed them how to conduct a SCAT and allowed them to test each other, and demonstrated different rehab equipment/techniques.
