Buies Creek- Jonathan P. Howard, a Campbell University student from Garner, N.C., will be among those traveling to Washington, D.C. from Feb. 21-23 for the inaugural iLead Student Leadership Program. iLead is constructed around a series of educational and interactive sessions that are specially designed to provide key information to help students lead and communicate better as they enter the workforce and represent the athletic training profession.

"We are extremely pleased to have Jonathan join more than 150 student peers for iLead," said Marjorie J. Albohm, MS, ATC, president of NATA. "This year's conference boasts a stellar group of athletic training students. We look forward to providing them with deeper insight into how to become the most successful athletic trainers they can be, once they move into the professional world."

Presentations from industry executives and association members will focus on how the changing world is affecting the athletic training profession, determining one's leadership style to work together more effectively, improving communication and job seeking skills, among other timely topics.
