Lock Haven University professor, Dr. Yvette Ingram, LAT, ATC, was inducted into the Pennsylvania Athletic Training Hall of Fame at May 31 at the Pennsylvania Athletic Trainers’ Society Awards Banquet held in Gettysburg.

She woras a clinical athletic ks trainer with LHU’s football team and her teaching responsibilities, for more than two decades, have included primarily administration and organization, current issues and the psychology of injury and illness. 

“(Yvette) has worked tirelessly to advance the profession and standard of care athletic trainers provide in the state of Pennsylvania. Yvette is not only an advocate for the profession, but she is also a role model and advocate for all the students that she currently teaches and to our athletic training alums,” said Dr. Jody Russell, athletic training program director at LHU.

Ingram’s research interests are in the area of mental health in the athletic population. She was a member of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) mental health ad hoc committee, whose task was to develop conference wide guidelines for screening and caring for athletes with mental health issues. She also is a member of the NCAA/SSI Mental Health Best Practice Strategies Task Force, has presented strategies for implementing mental health into a clinical practice at the PSAC Mental Health Symposium, the Pennsylvanian Athletic Trainers’ Society (PATS) Mental Health Forum at the Clinical Symposium and most recently, at the 2019 NCAA Convention. 

She volunteers for PATS and has served as the chairperson of the continuing education and the long range planning committees, a committee member of the PATS symposium programming and free communication committees, the parliamentarian, northcentral representative of the executive board, the president-elect, president and past president.

Her most recent projects involve co-authoring a position statement written for the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine about mental health issues in student-athletes and working with a PSAC sister institution to validate various mental health screening tools and determine prevalence rates of mental health issues in Division II college athletes. 

“This induction is truly an honor and one that I do not take lightly,” Ingram said. “The work I have done over the years was always because I enjoyed it and never for the recognition. David J. Tomasi instilled in us a sense of service and giving back to the profession that we so dearly love.”

Ingram also is the recipient of the 2018 Temple University Department of Kinesiology Alumni Achievement Award, the 2017 Pennsylvania Athletic Trainers’ Society Distinguished Merit Award and the 2015 National Athletic Trainers Association Service Award.
