Christine M. Bonci

Christine as an athletic trainer and assistant athletic director at the University of Texas- Austin and worked with athletes for 28 years. Under her direction, UT developed an interdisciplinary model for health care that focused on clinical, research and educational initiatives that have preventive, health-restoring and performance-enhancing potential.
