Free Communications Program

One of the top attractions for the NATA Clinical Symposia & AT Expo is the Free Communications program (more casually known as Free Comm), a program sponsored by the NATA Research & Education Foundation that gives athletic trainers a forum for distributing new research and clinical case studies. To date, the program has provided almost 5,000 poster and oral presentations.


Distinguished Scholar Presentations

Exchange lecturers from other sports medicine associations will speak about their research. The NATA Foundation’s Medal for Distinguished Athletic Training Research, New Investigator Award and Doctoral Dissertation Award and Free Communications Student Award winners will also be formally recognized at this two-hour session.
