GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Green Bay Packers announced Thursday they have promoted UW-Madison graduate and intern Erin Roberge to the first female full-time athletic trainer in the franchise's history.

"Through the internship experiences over the last few years, it became apparent to us that Erin would be a great addition to our staff," said Packers director of sports medicine/head athletic trainer Bryan Engel. "She shares a passion for the athletic training profession and is dedicated to providing our players with the highest quality health care in the NFL."
