Cool Job Keeps Athletes in the Game
Lannie Hales' job is cool because she gets paid to attend sporting events. As the athletic trainer for East Carolina University's Cross Country / Track and Field team, she attends events in the fall, winter and spring to keep her
athletes healthy throughout their seasons. Athletic trainers
are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. Athletic trainers are licensed as health care professionals in about 48 of the 50 states in the USA.
