Local High School Students Learn Hands-on About AT and PT From SLU Faculty and Students

The Saint Louis University Department of Physical Therapy and Athletic Training hosted students from Maplewood-Richmond Heights High School interested in Physical Therapy and Athletic Training 

 Dr. Anthony Breitbach, SLU AT Program Director, and AT student Heather Koch teach about electrical stimulation to students from Maplewood-Richmond Heights High School.
The students participated in a presentation on health careers, got a tour of the building and attended Therapeutic Modalities Lab with SLU AT & PT students. They participated in an activity where they used electrical stimulation to find muscle motor points.  They also got a chance to find out first hand about the fields of Physical Therapy and Athletic Training from students who are in the professional phase of those programs.
