Athletic training students win SWATA grants

The University of Arkansas in Fayetteville in September reported the Southwest Athletic Trainers’ Association awarded scholarships and research grants to three students in its graduate athletic training program at the association’s annual meeting in San Marcos, TX, where the regional group of Texas and Arkansas athletic trainers is based.

Among the winners was Mariellen Veach, who received the Texas Health Ben Hogan Sports Medicine Graduate Scholarship and an Entry-Level Master’s Student Grant. Veach, who earned a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, plans to use the grant to study preseason vitamin D levels as a predictor of musculoskeletal injury in college athletes.
