Athletic Training faculty represent Marietta at annual meeting
Marietta College’s Dr. Jaclyn Schwieterman recently presented her research, Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice: The what, when, and how, during the Great Lakes Athletic Trainer’s Association Annual Meeting and Symposium.
Schwieterman presented alongside Duquesne University’s Dr. Sarah Manspeaker and St. Louis University’s Dr. Anthony Breitbach. The presentation was based on past and current research conducted by the three individuals. As part of the presentation, Schwieterman shared the benefits of interprofessional collaboration and education as well as methods to incorporate this into clinical practice and education of future athletic training students.
Also, during the conference, Marietta’s Dr. Chyrsten Gessel was recognized as the 2023 GLATA Council on Early Career Athletic Trainers (CECAT) Preceptor of the Year.
“Last spring, I was able to work with an athletic training student from Ohio University during her clinical immersion experience prior to graduation,” Gessel said. “During her time at Marietta College, she worked with me to provide health care to the women’s lacrosse team. ... I am honored to be recognized for this award. Working with students is my passion. I consider myself lucky to be a dual-appointed athletic trainer where I get to teach and mentor the future of our profession in the classroom and clinic.”
At the conference, Schwieterman and Gessel accompanied two Marietta students — Allison Hanstine MAT ’24 (Pomeroy, Ohio) and Lauren Redfern MAT ’24 (Bellbrook, Ohio).
