The purpose of these monthly MCAT ShopTalk events is 2-fold:

  1. Provide 1 BOC CE credit 
  2. Provide an opportunity to “talk shop” during the second 45 mins – open case study discussions/peer case consultations, discussions about challenges we are facing as ATs locally and regionally and collaboratively-developed solutions, discuss ways to further promote Athletic Training as a profession in Mercer County. Oh, and to eat some food!
