Dedicated to Research and Education for the Athletic Training Profession



President's Welcome



I’m extremely proud to be your 49th President of the Eastern Athletic Trainers’ Association (EATA) and continue to lead the EATA’s mission. The mission of the EATA is to provide our membership with educational opportunities, our student members with scholarships, and funding for research.

I mentioned in Philadelphia at the EATA Business Meeting a quote by Thomas Edison, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work”. I can assure you all; I plan to work hard for the members of the EATA to improve our education, scholarships, and research.

As with any professional organization, the EATA is only as strong as its members so I encourage each of you to continue to demonstrate, individually and together, the expert services provided by an athletic trainer. Together, our actions will represent our great profession and earn the ubiquitous admiration we greatly deserve.

Please consider being active, serving and simply offering your ideas to myself or any of the executive board members. We need your questions, comments, and criticisms to make the profession better and continue to move it forward.

With gratitude,

Gregory K. Janik, MS, LAT, ATC
President, Eastern Athletic Trainers’ Association
