NATA inducts Max Into Hall of Fame

May 1, 2007


The National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA), a nonprofit organization representing and supporting 30,000 members of the athletic training profession, will induct Julie Max, Cal State Fullerton’s head athletic trainer and lecturer of kinesiology, into its Hall of Fame in June.

Max, who was elected NATA’s first female president in 2000, has worked on campus for more than two decades. She coordinates and supervises health care for 17 intercollegiate athletic teams, including prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of all injuries and illnesses. She began teaching in 1981.

“Since beginning my training and career as an athletic trainer, I’ve taken great pride in my profession, the opportunities it has presented and the way I have been able to give back to others,” Max said. “I am especially fortunate to have been able to lead this distinguished organization as a board member, and to work side by side with my veteran colleagues and students.”

Max earned a bachelor’s degree in physical education from CSUF and a master’s degree in education from Azusa Pacific University.

“We are delighted to honor Julie Max for her outstanding accomplishments and commitment to the profession,” said NATA Executive Director Eve Becker-Doyle. “She joins the more than 200 other remarkable athletic trainers in the NATA Hall of Fame who inspire all of us.”
