Hospital

Certified Athletic Trainer Megan Born has been recruited to provide injury care and performance improvement training techniques for Mohawk High School student athletes starting with fall sports practices.

Born will work with coaches and athletes in all sports for on-site medical care for practices and games or matches. She will treat and manage sports injuries, illnesses and conditions; and coordinate care with UrgentCare, the Emergency Department and medical and rehabilitative specialists at Wyandot Memorial Hospital and other facilities as needed. She will also provide concussion prevention and management, and streamline return-to-play to keep athletes safe and in the game.

The hospital’s SportsCare program has partnered with MHS to have a certified athletic trainer as part of the athletic staff. As a healthcare professional, an athletic trainer is responsible for injury and illness prevention, wellness promotion and education, emergent care, examination and clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.

Born most recently served as the certified athletic trainer at Upper Sandusky High School. Prior work experience includes positions as an assistant athletic trainer at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro, graduate assistant athletic trainer at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, and intern athletic trainer at the University of Evansville in Evansville, Indiana.

Born earned a Master of Science in Kinesiology at George Mason University and received a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training from Marietta College. She is board certified by the National Athletic Trainer’s Association and licensed by the Ohio Board of Athletic Trainer Examiners. She is certified in American Red Cross First Aid, CPR and AED for the professional rescuer.
