It seems that every year we have new and exciting things happening in the Post Professional Athletic Training Program and this year is no exception. As many of you know, Dr. John Schrader is now the Assistant Dean for Student Academic Affairs. While his office has moved to the Dean’s suite we are still keeping him actively involved in the program teaching classes and helping with research projects. Dr. Jackie Kingma has taken over many of his teaching responsibilities and was officially appointed a Clinical Associate Professor. Jackie has been sharing her extensive knowledge and expertise for years but it is great to finally have her in an official capacity. Additionally, Alyssa McPherson is now overseeing the graduate students who work in the performing arts and military medicine settings. I’m sure many of you remember Alyssa who is a 2013 graduate of the program. I feel so fortunate to have both Jackie and Alyssa as faculty members in our program. Finally, we hired a new Biomechanists, Dr. Allison Gruber! She has been a fantastic addition to our research laboratory and with her hire we have

completely renovated the front portion of the lab. It now includes a state of the art 3D motion capture system, three impeded force plates, and an elevated platform to conduct an array of running and cutting studies. It seems we have come a long way since our research laboratory at University Gymnasium. Of course, each year we have a new group of graduate students matriculating into our program, and it is the students who really make this program special. Most recently, 2014 PPATEP graduates have moved on to an array of different settings: 4 are athletic trainers in the college setting, 1 enrolled in an Athletic Training residency program, 1 is an athletic trainer at a high school, and 2 are pursuing a PhD.

It has been a challenge in the interim (below), but well worth the wait!

Please let us know what is going on in your lives‌ I hope to see all of you at the NATA symposium inSt Louis!

NEW FACES: Academic Faculty NEW CLINICAL EDUCATION COORDINATOR & LECTURER / AT WITH ROTC

Brad Sage joined the IU faculty this past August as the clinical education coordinator for the undergraduate athletic training program. Brad takes over the position previously held by Dr. Joanne Klossner and will assume the responsibilities of developing, implementing, overseeing and evaluating all aspects of undergraduate athletic training clinical education. In addition to full teaching responsibilities, Brad will have a regular presBRADLEY W. SAGE ence in all of our affiliated athletic CLINICAL EDUCATION COORDINATOR training facilities interacting with students and staff. Mr. Sage comes to IU from Mercyhurst University in Erie, PA where he spent the last 9 years serving in a similar capacity as the clinical education coordi-

nator for the athletic training program. While at Mercyhurst, Brad also worked clinically as an assistant athletic trainer, served as the undergraduate research coordinator, and was the faculty advisor for Iota Tau Alpha. Mr. Sage has also had stints as the head athletic trainer at Family First Sports Park in Erie, PA and at Norview High School in Norfolk, VA. Brad holds an M.S.Ed., from Old Dominion University and a BS from Mercyhurst University. In his spare time Brad is an avid fan of the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres, enjoy fishing and the occasional round of golf. Brad, his wife Jamie and dog Sabre are extremely excited to come to Bloomington.

“It is truly an honor and blessing for my wife and I to join the IU community. The tremendously talented athletic training faculty and staff, both past and present, along with a strong alumni have created a tradition which has made IU a cornerstone institution for our profession. It is my hope to uphold these traditions while ensuring that athletic training at IU will continue to be a model program ready to face the unique challenges of a changing healthcare landscape. Although I am still not quite sure exactly what a Hoosier is (does anyone really know?) I couldn’t be more thrilled to be in Bloomington and join this incredible institution. Go Hoosiers!” Alyssa returns to IU after completing her MS in 2013. She began her athletic training education at Purdue University (shhh!), completing her BS honors in 2007. While at IU previously, she oversaw Ballet. Following graduation, she pursued the Emory AT Physician Extender Residency.

AROUND CAMPUS STUDENTS AND STAFF MAKING THE NEWS

Performing Arts Tradition NEW FACULTY MEMBER ALYSSA MCPHERSON IS PROFILED IN THE JANUARY NATA NEWS FOR HER WORK WITH DRUM CORPS (Page 28)

Alyssa has previously spent 3 summers (3+ months each) on nationwide tours with various drum corps. Here are some highlights of the article: What is the healthcare coverage currently like for drum corps members? “Medical coverage is varied. Generally, it is incredibly limited. Most other corps, if they have any medical coverage at all, rely on volunteers ... this makes continuity of care very difficult. Few medical staff or volunteers, if any, have the advanced musculoskeletal knowledge that ATs have, nor the overall case and care management experience.” “Being on tour, you are responsible for the health and wellbeing of more than 150 performers, 30 staff members, and 10 or more volunteers. You see the gamut of everything; I’ve seen a compound open tibiafibula fracture while on tour, the worst concussion that I’ve yet to encounter, seizures, heart attacks, many broken teeth, ACL tears, shoulder dislocations, and other serious injuries and illnesses.” “Nowhere else do ATs live in such a buble for a continuous amount of time. Even on other performing arts tours, you stay in hotels, go out to eat or sightsee occassionally. For drum corps tours, you eat, live, and breathe drum corps. The stakes are very high for these performers; there typically aren’t true replacements, and many times an injury means either getting by or going home.”

Senior ATS Austin Gray was recently profiled by Portraits of IU. A non-traditional undergraduate student, Austin said the following: “I came to IU my freshman year, didn’t really know what I was doing, so I withdrew from school and got a full-time job. I worked for five years. Sometimes I hate that I’m just now getting my Bachelor’s Degree at 27, but at the same time, I wouldn’t change it because during that time I did learn valuable things.” When asked to explain athletic training: “Athletic training focuses on prevention and treatment of injury, rehabilitation, as well as monitoring athletic events. It’s growing a lot right now, [...] so athletic trainers aren’t only on sports fields, they’re showing up in hospitals, high schools, other settings. A lot of people don’t realize what all goes into it. [...] We have to know anatomy and we also do general medicine, so we have to be well-rounded in a lot of things.”
