Pardee UNC Health Care has expanded its Sports Medicine program to Transylvania County with the addition of two full-time certified athletic trainers (ATCs) to support Brevard High School, Rosman High School, Brevard Middle School and Rosman Middle School.
The Pardee Sports Medicine team includes certified athletic trainers supported by board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic physicians and a sports medicine fellowship-trained internal medicine physician. Pardee has a robust network of experienced athletic trainers who support 19 schools across five counties, ensuring optimum coverage at all venues.
Pardee certified athletic trainers provide comprehensive concussion management and heat condition monitoring to ensure schools remain compliant with state requirements; oversee athletic training supply management to help schools leverage their supply budgets and purchase the most innovative, cost-effective products available; and facilitate CPR classes led by American Heart Association CPR instructors.
