A local physical therapist is lending a helping hand to a group of students at West Oso High School.
Today, Scott Humpal along with students and staff at the school unveiled the Humpal Physical Therapy Medical Lab. The lab will help ten students enrolled in the health science program gain four certifications as well as college credits.
Humpal says he heard about the program and right away, knew he had to help.
Humpal said “It’s always rewarding to help kids that really need it.”
One of the students, Rosaura Christan, is in the program. She said “They’re getting us ready to get into the real world. They don’t treat us like little kids, they make sure we’re always on time and we have to be dressed in our scrubs everyday.”
The students will complete the program in December and are already working out in the field at various nursing homes in town.
