Better, Faster, Stronger: The Use of Direct Access Testing by Fitness Professionals

From the 2020 Joint Annual Meeting (June 30, 2020)
Presented by Carol Rentas, PhD, MT(ASCP), SC
Increased availability of direct access testing (DAT) has shifted the focus from diagnosis to prevention. Fitness experts are partnering with clients to use DAT to direct their client’s progress. Here we explore the emergence of a new member of our healthcare team and how it reframes the future of lab testing.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Outline the ways direct access testing (DAT) is changing the healthcare landscape.
  2. Describe the use of fitness blood profiles to prevent instead of treat disease.
  3. Discuss the new dynamics of a healthcare team which includes fitness professionals.
