The membership of the DCATA, along with countless other athletic trainers across the country, mourn the loss of Rachael Oats, NATA AED. Her legacy to the profession is immense and immeasurable. For over 20 years she championed our causes and moved the profession forward. Rachael’s heart, passion and dedication will forever be an indelible part of our history.
The DCATA sent flowers to Rachael to brighten her time in hospice and will make a donation to the NATA Foundation Rachael Oats Scholarship Endowment Fund to ensure future athletic trainers keep her spirit alive.
Rest easy, Rachael.
