Embracing Diversity: Become a Mentor
NATA
Close your eyes and picture a large group of athletes. Chances are, the image in your head includes individuals of many different sizes, shapes and colors. It goes without saying that athletics today is as ethnically and racially diverse as the country itself. Now, close your eyes and picture your most recent regional athletic trainers' association gathering, or remember the people you met at the last NATA convention. Again there are probably many shapes and sizes. But the racial makeup may not be very diverse; according to the NATA's latest figures, only 14 percent of ATs in the association today are classified as ethnic minorities. NATA has made a commitment to increasing diversity in the profession, and the association's Ethnic Diversity Advisory Committee is taking the lead in those efforts. Help the EDAC mission by joining the mentor database.

Rehabbing Rodeo Riders: Stock Show Docs Keep Cowboys in Saddle
Rapid City Journal
In rodeo, every part of a rider's body has an opportunity to become injured. Arms and legs can get broken; organs can be ruptured; brains can be concussed. That forces members of the sports medicine crew at the Black Hills Stock Show & Rodeo to remain ready at all times to help a cowboy or cowgirl if any of those things happen — before, during or after the heat of competition.

Sports Culture Fuels Orthopedics Boom
Star Tribune
Over 40 years, Bob Niebuhr learned that handball doesn't have to be a young man's game — that an old man can deliciously keep a young man running around the court by swatting the ball with the proper power, precision and geo­metry. So when Niebuhr, 68, saw the doctor for a checkup after his second hip replacement, he had one burning question: "How about handball?"
