Mike Matheny is Head Athletic Trainer and Clinical Associate Professor at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York.  He is lead author on a pair of articles in the current International Journal of Athletic Therapy and Training related to Vocal Cord Dysfunction - Exercise-Induced Laryngeal Obstruction.  His collaboration with a Speech Language Pathologist in the recognition and management of VCD-EILO has been chronicled recently in the NATA news and in the upcoming Training & Conditioning magazine.

Mike and I had a great chat about a number of things about his experiences and career in athletic training.  I think you'll enjoy this episode!

Sue Falsone spoke with a group of Tusculum College students for this episode of ATPodcast.  Sue currently serves as Head of Athletic Training and Sports Performance for the US Men’s National Soccer Team.  She is the owner of Structure & Function, an educational and consulting business for healthcare providers and athletes.  For several years, she served as Head Athletic Trainer for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

This is very open and honest discussion of her career and she gives great professional advice to these soon-to-be athletic trainers and it serves as a good model for other student-led interviews.  If you have interest in your student group doing some thing similar, let me know!
