The 2019 WSATA Annual Meeting and Clinical Symposium will take place on Saturday, July 20th at the University of Washington Husky Stadium in the Don James Center. Once again the University of Washington Athletic Training Staff have helped us put together another CEU event in a great venue for our members and we hope you are looking forward to this annual event. For the past few years attendance has reached 90+ and we hope to keep that going with this year’s program. We will have a continental breakfast, lunch and our post-meeting social. We are grateful to our sponsors for making these opportunities available to our members at this program.
We are working on completing the program at this time and we are looking forward to seeing our WSATA friends and colleagues on July 20th in Seattle!
