Gwinnett Medical Center’s Sports Medicine program helps 14 Gwinnett schools earn athletic safety designation

Fourteen Gwinnett schools that partner with Gwinnett Medical Center’s Sports Medicine program recently received “Safe Sports School Status” designations by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association.

Given to schools that have taken crucial steps to keep their athletes free from injuries, to earn the designation, athletic programs must promote safe and appropriate practice and competition facilities, provide or coordinate per-participation physical examinations and more.
