   Ben Carbajal, MS, ATC, has been an Athletic Trainer at Pima Community College for 25 years. He earned his certification in 1977 and has since been advancing our profession through education and activism.

Ben has found his involvement in the Ethnic Diversity Advisory Council to be very rewarding. It has provided him with the opportunity to meet and mentor many intelligent and interesting people. Ben was a member of the first Minority Athletic Training Committee, the predecessor of the EDAC.

Ben offers this morsel of wisdom to all of us trying to make our way into the field of Athletic Training. “Athletic training is a difficult profession with many challenges. You must have a lot of inner drive and passion in order to make it your career.”
