National Athletic Training Month Spotlight: Emma Hoffman

SANTA BARBARA, Calif.— Every March, the National Athletic Training Association (NATA) spreads awareness about the important work of athletic trainers during National Athletic Training Month. The organization supports its members through the sharing of stories and media to elevate different programs and individuals behind this year's campaign slogan: "ATs Impact Health Care Through Action."

Emma Hoffman is the second of UC Santa Barbara's six certified athletic trainers (ATC) to be featured this month and is assigned to the both Gaucho women's volleyball and baseball.

Hoffman on why she became an ATC: "To help my student-athletes stay in the field and continue to play the sport they love either by prevention of injuries or rehabilitation after injury."
