Maury Regional athletic trainers invite area coaches to clinic


COLUMBIA, Tenn. – Maury Regional Health athletic trainers will host a coaches clinic for all sports coaches in the area to learn more about preparing athletes for their season.

The clinic will be held April 13 at 9 a.m. at the Maury Regional Annex, which is across the street from Maury Regional Medical Center at 1223 Trotwood Ave. in Columbia. It is meant for coaches of any age group (youth, middle school, high school, college or volunteer) or for anyone else who wants to learn about coaching, leadership, athlete safety and more.

A group of speakers are slated to present, including:

∙ Brigadier General Steven Turner, assistant adjutant general with the Tennessee Army National Guard, will present on leadership, ownership and mentorship.

∙ Andrew K. Nielsen, MD, a specialist in internal medicine and pediatrics with Maury Regional Medical Group Primary Care & Pediatrics, will present on nutrition and hydration.

∙ Amanda Cothran, MSN, RN, CEN, the stroke, trauma and chest pain center coordinator for Maury Regional Medical Center, will present on pre-hospital management of athletic injuries.  

After the speaker session, CPR training will be provided for anyone interested.

Coaches from Maury County Public Schools will also receive in-service credit for attending.

The clinic is free to attend. Registration is not required, but anyone attending is asked to RSVP by emailing
