WALLENPAUPACK - On Thursday, October 19, Wallenpaupack’s Allied Health level two students, taught by Mrs. Karen Beilman, were invited to participate in Cathy Krasniak’s Introduction to Physical Therapy Assistant class at Lackawanna College Lake Region Branch. 

The high school and college students interacted to complete an Assistive Devices and Weight Bearing Status lab.  Students worked together on fitting walkers, crutches, and gait belts as well as assisting each other with wheelchair transfers.

Additionally, Cathy Krasniak outlined career opportunities in the Physical Therapy Assistant field. 

Career Coordinator Mrs. Colleen Edwards, Mrs. Beilman, and the students are grateful for the hands-on learning experience at Lackawanna College.
