Posted: Monday, July 9, 2018
Morgan Perry, recent 2018 graduate of the Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) at the University of Evansville, won the research presentation award at the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) Convention last week.
Morgan’s abstract titled “The Risk of Ankle Sprains Based on Arthrometer Measurements: A Longitudinal Study” was selected by NATA’s Research and Education Foundation as one of the top four abstracts submitted by a Masters student for this year’s meeting. These four students gave their presentation in a special session at NATA in New Orleans, LA and was judged for scientific content and presentation style. '
Being a finalist was a high distinction in itself, but Morgan represented UE impressively by winning the Master’s Research Presentation Award.
Morgan’s abstract was a part of her graduate research work co-authored by research advisor Kathy Liu, UE professor and director of Masters of Science in Athletic Training Program; biostatistician William McConnell; and Dr. Geoff Gustavsen and professor Thomas Kaminski (both of the University of Delaware).
Morgan has accepted a job as an athletic training intern at Alabama A&M and will be working with their football and track and field programs.
