Mark Husen to be Inducted into WATA Hall of Fame

Bellin Health’s Mark Husen will be inducted into the Wisconsin Athletic Trainers’ Association Hall of Fame, the highest honor awarded by WATA, on Sunday, April 23.

Husen began his tenure with Bellin Health over 25 years ago as an athletic trainer and has played an active role in advancing the sports medicine services Bellin provides to Northeast Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

“I am incredibly honored to be nominated and inducted into the hall of fame by the Wisconsin Athletic Trainers’ Association,” said Husen. “My journey has truly been and will continue to be about helping others and the relationships I’ve established over these years. I am forever grateful.”

Husen has been a member of WATA since 1998. In 2017, he received the organization’s Distinguished Service Award for his contributions to the athletic training profession at the local, state and regional levels.

“Mark has been and remains a shining example of commitment and service to his athletes, to his customers and to his profession,” said Bellin Health Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Outreach Programs Director Phil Schaible. “He has role modeled the importance of being an active member of professional organizations that advocate for sports medicine professionals at the state and national levels. We are incredibly proud of his recognition as a new Wisconsin Athletic Trainers’ Association Hall of Fame member.”

Being elected to the WATA Hall is Fame is only the most recent accomplishment for Husen, who was honored at Bellin Health’s annual Values in Practice awards banquet last year for his commitment to community and the relationships he has constructed throughout this region. He was also recognized at this annual event in 2013 and 2017.
