JWJBH Workers

Even though athletics are currently halted, New Jersey athletic trainers (ATs) remain on the front lines of healthcare. No longer on the sidelines of an athletic event, ATs state-wide are now helping fight the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 has caused an increased need for healthcare professionals and first responders - a need that athletic trainers are more than qualified to fill.
