Who helped me in a time of need?A special thanks to my facilitator and mentorDana Vadino

Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC)

Specializes in emergency and immediate care, treatment, and rehab of athletic injuries

Targeted only the most common types of physical injuries (there are many other injuries as well, etc.) Neck/Head

Things I learned and Ideas on Senior ProjectI learned not to wait until last minuteI found out there is more to physical therapy than just stretchingThe senior project is a wonderful idea, but I feel like I took a step into it at a wrong angle

What Are My Future Plans?I love physical therapy and the idea of helping peopleI want to pursue physical therapy for athletes as a career to save athletes careersChallengesI had two physical therapist drop out Every persons body is different Finding time to get with Dana
