Bayhealth Physical Therapist Mary Mundrane-Zweiacher, PT, ATC, CHT, of Middletown recently received the Presidential Recognition Award from the Eastern Athletic Trainers Association (EATA) at its annual meeting in January.
The President's Recognition Award, established in 2006, is given to the person who shows unselfish and dedicated efforts which has advanced the EATA and the athletic training profession.
In 2005, the EATA asked Mundrane-Zweiacher to create an educational conference for undergraduate and graduate students in physical therapy and sports medicine fields. Since the first year’s conference, which attracted a little over 100 students, the conference has grown to over 425 attendees this year.
“The conference exposes the students to new techniques and varied job settings,” she said. “For instance, we’ve had the female trainer for the Pittsburgh Steelers as well as the trainer for the New York Rockettes and industrial companies come speak to the students.”
Mundrane-Zweiacher is an athletic trainer, physical therapist and certified hand therapist who was also inducted in the Delaware Hall of Fame for Sports Medicine.
