The Health, Exercise, and Sports Studies major prepares students for many careers: physical and occupational therapy, athletic training, nursing—even becoming a doctor.
Effie Morway ’14, who currently is thriving in medical school at Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine- Ohio University, graduated with a major in athletic training (which has been reinvigorated as the health, exercise and sport studies major).
Morway’s classes equipped her with a range of practical skills and knowledge — from physical palpation to medical vocabulary — as she learned across a curriculum that embraces arts and humanities as well as sciences.
She may have thrived through her coursework, but her professors, especially Drs. Brian Hortz and Eric Winters, inspired and encouraged Morway along the way.
