Emily Aaron MEd, AT, ATC


About Us:

We are responsible for all necessary activities that promote MATS, its members, and the profession of athletic training in Michigan. Additionally, we work to provide information and representation from MATS to all state medical organizations and various special interest groups. We also generate and maintain the MATS public relations display and video, printed materials, and photographs.


We supply available public relations materials, a display booth, and video to members of MATS for meetings and clinics to enhance the awareness of athletic training and MATS, while working in conjunction with the District IV and NATA public relations chairs on common projects to promote the profession of Athletic Training.


Goals, Functions, and Responsibilities:

  1. Improve grassroots public relations among MATS members, especially during March.

  2. Facilitate recognition of National Athletic Training Month (NATM) efforts at the MATS, GLATA, and NATA level.

  3. Promotion to the MHSAA as potential employers at the MIAAA Conference along with the Secondary Schools Committee.

  4. Promotion of MATS and Athletic Training and increased communication through postings on the MATS Social Media accounts.
