Dylan Plants - March 8, 2018

With the help of the classes offered by the master's program, as well as the clinical internships at the local hospitals, I was very well prepared to successfully pass the exam and become one step closer to my career. I will hopefully be able to work with patients in a cardiac rehab facility, helping them achieve their goals and become more healthy."
