UK Hosts KATS Symposium, Hoch Wins Educator/Preceptor of Year

Last weekend, UK had the opportunity to host Kentucky Athletic Training Society's annual symposium and some of our students and our preceptors got in on the action!

There, Hannah Hoch, PhD, ATC, was honored with the KATS 2022-2023 Educator/Preceptor of the year.

Hoch, the Associate Professor in the Department of Athletic Training and Clinical Nutrition, and Program Director of the Professional Masters in Athletic Training, said winning the award was an "absolute honor."

"I have been blessed to have the opportunity to combine my passion for athletic training and passion to teach students in to this amazing job — an athletic training educator," she said. "There have been so many individuals along my journey that have made an impact and have helped me become the educator I am today, I can’t thank you enough. Most importantly, thank you to my students — past, present, and future. You give me the opportunity each day to do what I love, and love what I do. I hope that you recognize how grateful I am for each of you!"
