Sue Stanley Green, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Athletic Training

"My teaching philosophy is to try to make sure the students "get it". It is easy to memorize things for a test. In Athletic Training, you have to understand what you are doing and make quick and very appropriate decisions. We teach and learn in the classroom, practice in the lab, then use that knowledge and skills in real life clinical experiences."
