Deanna M. Errico, clinical assistant professor in the Physical Therapy program at Clarkson University, received two awards at the Eastern Athletic Trainers’ Association annual conference in January.
Errico received the New York State Athletic Trainers’ Association Sheehan Award, the organization’s highest award. It is presented to the athletic trainer whose character, commitment and achievements in the athletic training profession clearly exemplify the traits of Thomas J. Sheehan Sr., a founder of the EATA.
She also received the Presidential Award from the Eastern Athletic Trainers’ Association, which is given to the person who shows unselfish and dedicated efforts that have advanced the EATA and the athletic training profession. Errico is only the fourth person to receive this award.
Errico has been a faculty member in the Department of Physical Therapy since 2002. She has been a certified athletic trainer since 1992 and a licensed physical therapist since 2002. Her research interests include problem-based learning, systemic sclerosis, and sustainability and the environment.
She received her doctorate in physical therapy from Simmons College, her master of physical therapy degree from Clarkson University, her master of science in education from Alfred University, and her bachelor of science in sport and exercise studies from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
