IATA Summer Symposium

The 2017 IATA Summer Symposium will focus on “Treating the Entire Athlete”. We will kick off the day with an interesting case study examining Exercise-Induced Anaphylaxis. Further topics of discussion will include aspects of strength and conditioning, a presentation by a sports psychologist regarding mental health and daily struggles of athletes as well as the utilization of a holistic approach as a means to treat the entire athlete. We will also explore the diagnosis of Vocal Cord Dysfunction (VCD) vs asthma and delve into the importance of sleep for athletes and how it affects performance. Finally we will discuss how to incorporate diet and nutrition as a means of providing comprehensive health and well-being.


  • Recognize the difference between symptoms associated with Vocal Cord Dysfunction (VCD) vs Asthma
  • Identify warning signs associated with Exercise-Induced Anaphylaxis
  • List appropriate exercises for injury prevention when building a workout program for an athlete.
  • Define forms of abuse in athletes.
  • Understand the effects of sleep on performance.
  • Identify foods that help heal concussions.
  • List the ways Athletic Trainers are a conduit for treating an athlete holistically.
