Ep. 158: Adam Halpern-Founder/CEO Experience

In episode 152 we talked to Adam Halpern about the pivot and ultimate founding of WaveOn Health (link below). That episode was filled with a ton of great information if you have any interest in getting into entrepreneurship in any sector but we wanted to do a few follow-up episodes to dive further into some of the topics we covered.


This episode is about being a founder/CEO. Adam breaks down the differences between the two, how they can mesh together or be very separate. He also talks about the trials and tribulations that came along the way and how developing his idea started. This is a fascinating episode and we learned a lot that we can apply to our situation and we hope you can do the same. Enjoy.

Ep. 157: NATA Renewal Roundtable Discussion w/ Emily Huston & Eric Rogers

Every year when NATA renewal comes up the larger discussion on if it is worth it to renew your personal membership. There are a lot of factors that go into it. Does your employer pay for it? What are you getting from the membership? Is it your duty to support the profession through the association?

With all of these questions, we wanted to discuss membership renewal and the process that went into it. Emily Huston is an AT who is currently in PA school and brings some insight into how each of the professional memberships compare to each other and why she wants to keep up with NATA but is finding it difficult. Eric Rogers has gone back and forth many times about membership and shares why he decided to renew this year and what he would like to see for his membership money.


This was a great conversation and maybe a few ideas came out of it. If you’d like to talk about your experience with membership, we’d love to hear from you.




In This Episode:

+Discussion on NATA Renewal consideration

+Differences between associations

+What could the NATA do to make it easier to renew?

Ep. 155: Dr. Zachary Winkelmann-Master's Transition & Patient-Centered Care

Dr. Zachary Winkelmann is a professor and clinical education coordinator at the University of South Carolina. USC has done something interesting as the education side of athletic training transitioned to a professional master's degree. USC actually offers both (for the time being) in terms of a post-professional master's as well as a professional master's. In this episode, we talk to Dr. Winkelmann about what he has seen in the transition to the master's degree and the impact it has had on athletic training education and also athletic trainers getting into the profession so far. 

We get into some of the details and nuance of how it seems to be setting up students to find jobs they want and that are setting them up for success early on in their career. We also talk about some of Dr. Winkelmann’s research on patient-centered care. He defines what that truly means and we discuss how you can balance and work together with the patient to achieve goals that still are important in their values as well as coordinate with what you believe and know as a clinician. There is some great insight shared. Check it out and we hope you enjoy it.



In This Episode:

+The transition from bachelor to masters

+Impact of MSAT/MAT on jobs

+Unforeseen circumstances with the transition

+Focus on student mental health

+Terminology matters within education

+Patient-centered care

Ep. 154: Paul Rupp-Social Media & Ethics in Athletic Training

Paul Rupp is an athletic trainer who works in the secondary setting and is the chair of the NATA Committe on Professional Ethics. Paul recently wrote an article in the NATA News about the importance of ethics in athletic training but in particular how it applies to social media. If you’ve been around social media you’ve probably seen how some topics tend to get very heated, very quickly and often can turn into something that goes beyond discussion. Paul discusses how the COPE handles these cases and also discusses how often these types of cases come up.

The episode contains a ton of insight on what COPE is and how it tries to help keep the profession ethical, in particular the members of the NATA. They put in a lot of work and the cases they deal with range wildly in terms of what they pertain too. It was an enlightening episode for me and I think will shed some great light on what the committee does and their goals to help the profession. Please check it out and in the future, think before you Tweet (X, post, etc.).



In This Episode:

+What is COPE and how does it work?

+Statistics of what comes into COPE.

+Common issues of ethical violations on social media

+See somethign and please report it

+What actually is permission? Application to minors.

+Trying to be a part of the COPE commitee.

Ep. 153: Mitchell Barnhart-AT Free CEUs

Mitchell is an athletic trainer who has provided a lot of value to the profession by setting up a website that lists free CEUs so you don’t have to go and find them on your own. This all started as a project and solving a problem that many people had stated, they just couldn’t find CEUs that were legit and actually free. Mitchell started ATfreeCEU.com and in this episode, he shares his story on how it all got started.

He also discusses the process he goes through to audit the CEUs on a semi-annual basis to ensure that everything stays up to date. It is pretty impressive to hear how many free CEUs there are out there. There are plenty to cover several periods of CEU reporting. This is a great episode on finding a problem, solving it, and providing value to the profession. Check it out.
