Student Internship Highlights
Health and Exercise Physiology major Chris Barrett, UC ’18 is interning at The Cage Performance Center in Phoenixville, PA as an assistant sports performance trainer. “My responsibilities include performance training, assistance in managing the gym, and assisting in the organization of group classes and one-on-one sessions.”
Kaci McNeave, UC ’19, at Evolution Sports Physiotherapy in Cockeysville, MD. Kaci tells us, “As a Health and Exercise Physiology major as well as a two-sport athlete, I looked for a place that practiced physical therapy in new and advanced ways. Evolution Sports combines physical therapy with strength and conditioning. I was able to observe and even experience new and super cool treatments like thoracic manipulations, dry needling, needling with electrostimulation, as well as cupping.”
