Being in the Sports Medicine program at CCH helped me realize that this was what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, my "Ah hah" moment so to speak. I am a Kinesiology student at the University of Lethbridge working towards my masters certificate in Athletic Therapy. I can honestly say this program was a huge asset to my decision.
