Kourtney Skinner, recent athletic training alumna, presented two abstracts at last month’s National Athletic Trainers’ Association convention in Baltimore, Maryland.
Skinner’s abstracts were titled “A Validation Case Study: The Use of Electromyographic Biofeedback for Post-ACL Rehabilitation” and “Elastic Rehabilitation Devices to Increase Lower Extremity Neuromuscular Control: A Systematic Review.”
“I gained a lot of information about how to transition into the job field,” said Skinner. “I was able to meet a lot of new people that could potentially help me in the future with finding a job.”
Waynesburg’s athletic training faculty guided Skinner through her main points of research, in addition to preparing her for the professional aspect of attending and presenting at a national conference. Skinner credits her education at Waynesburg for helping develop organizational and professional skills.
Skinner’s future plans include seeking a job at the high school level and earning a master’s degree within the next two years.
The National Athletic Trainers’ Association’s mission is to represent, engage and foster the continued growth and development of the athletic training profession and athletic trainers as unique health care providers.
Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region. The University is a member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) and is one of only 21 Bonner Scholar schools in the country, offering local, regional and international opportunities to touch the lives of others through service.
