Jamie DeRollo, a Modesto Junior College faculty member from Riverbank, was selected as chairperson for the National Athletic Trainers’ Association’s (NATA) newly formed Intercollegiate Council for Sports Medicine (ICSM), at its inaugural meeting earlier this summer in Houston, Texas.
The first council of its kind, the ICSM is comprised of 32 collegiate athletic trainers appointed from across the country. The organization aims to address student athlete health issues at the national level through a unique organizational structure that includes athletic trainers from NCAA Divisions I, II and III; NAIA; and the community colleges.
“We are extremely pleased to have Jamie join this esteemed group of sports medicine professionals,” said NATA President Scott Sailor, EdD, ATC. “We look forward to the council’s work with the NCAA and other national organizations to ensure that student athletes receive the best possible health care through new policies and resources.”
The ICSM meeting was held in conjunction with the 68th National Athletic Trainers’ Association Clinical Symposia & AT Expo, featuring hundreds of educational sessions and the largest exhibition of athletic training products and services in the world.
