Community Outreach

Expert Training for our Athletic Trainers with Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist and Wake Forest University

Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist recently offered their annual Athletic Training Outreach Program – a program designed to help athletes feel their best while refreshing sports professionals on some basic sports medicine techniques.

At Wake Forest School of Medicine’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation – we are proud to support community athletic training programs and events by providing coverage at the following events and teams. We are committed to producing and fostering physicians and trainees who serve and give back. Many of our trainees spend time on the sidelines providing community outreach.
