The purpose of the Pre-Therapy and Allied Health Club is to support students seeking careers in the allied health professions. We achieve this by providing students with opportunities to advance their knowledge of the field itself with the help of local professionals and alum, volunteer in the community, as well as gain valuable experience in clinical settings through job shadowing and job opportunities. The club as a whole strives to raise awareness for individuals with disabilities and hopes to make a positive impact in the community by promoting healthy and active lifestyles for all.
