Physical Therapy Students to Host Community Wellness Day
Looking to squeeze in a great cardio session, get advice on how to achieve your fitness goals, or enjoy a massage? University of Findlay’s Doctor of Physical Therapy Program students will host a community wellness day on Saturday, March 30 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Koehler Fitness and Recreation Complex on North Main Street.
All proceeds from the monetary donation-based event will benefit the Pitt-Marquette Challenge, a national student-led grassroots fundraiser to support the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research. The program will also provide physical therapy students with valuable hands-on learning.
Throughout the day, UF students will offer fitness consults, vitals checks, massages, balance screenings, and various fitness classes. A cardio dance class will take place at 10:15 a.m., and a yoga session at 2:15 p.m.
The University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy Program offers a 3+3 option whereby students can enter UF as undergraduates and complete their doctoral program in six years; a traditional program in which transfer students and other UF students who have earned bachelor’s degrees can go on to earn their DPT; and a weekend option for current Physical Therapy Assistants to earn their DPT.
