WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Both of my daughters attended the GS program in 2015 and really enjoyed it.
I’m happy to say that my oldest is pursuing an OT degree at PITT. She’s only a sophomore, so she has a way to go, but so far is happy with her choice.
My youngest is graduating in June and has been accepted into a few direct entry PT programs. Right now, she is still deciding between schools.
Thank you! What a wonderful experience for these ladies. Your badge program is phenomenal!
What a great way for the girls to be introduced to our profession and bale to simulare their interest in a health related profession.
What a pleasure to work with you. I am really looking forward to doing this again!
