The Great Lakes Athletic Trainers’ Association Education Committee is inviting proposals for professional presentations at the 2019 Annual Meeting and Symposium in Wheeling, IL, March 13-16, 2019. Athletic Trainers and affiliated professionals are encouraged to submit proposals for both general sessions and those that may qualify for the BOC’s Evidence-based Practice (EBP) continuing education units (CEUs). Presentation formats for all sessions include: feature presentations, learning labs and mini-courses. Further descriptions and guidelines for both types of proposals are posted below.

EBP Presentation topics should address athletic training domain(s) beyond entry-level knowledge or address a topic that would make a valuable contribution to the understanding of the practice or pedagogy of athletic training.

In addition, if one’s EBP presentation proposal is accepted by the GLATA, the author(s) must work with the GLATA Education Committee in securing BOC EBP course approval.Please note there is a specific application and proposal format for an EBP presentation.
