February 7, 2024- Henry Schein, in collaboration with the National Basketball Athletic Trainers Association, is marking National Girls and Women in Sports Day on February 7 with this video recognizing the indispensable roles played by women athletic trainers in the world of sports.
National Girls and Women in Sports Day honors athletic achievements by women, recognizes the importance of sports and fitness participation for all girls and women, and celebrates the power of women in sports and the continued push for equity. According to the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, 55 percent of its members are women. But there are significantly more male head athletic trainers in professional sports than women head athletic trainers. In men’s professional sports, a study published in the National Library of Medicine reveals that only 1.3 percent of head athletic trainers are women.
