Milwaukee Bucks Host Wisconsin Physical Therapy Student Network

Posted on January 06, 2015

Milwaukee Bucks Host WPTSN Students

In December, the Milwaukee Bucks were gracious enough to provide an amazing event for WPTSN Students. The event included a Milwaukee Bucks game and a tour of the Milwaukee Bucks’ training facility hosted by the Milwaukee Bucks PT and Director of Rehabilitation, Chris McKenzie. Chris McKenzie has an incredible amount of experience in sports medicine; aside from working with the Bucks, Chris has worked with athletes from College Olympics and the three major professional leagues in America (NFL, NBA, MLB), and has also worked as a researcher and professor at Ohio State University. Chris brought an incredible amount of knowledge and enthusiasm to his presentation and tour and gave students great insight into the world of Sports Medicine Rehabilitation. Chris also provided professional development advice applicable to any new professional seeking excellence in his or her chosen specialty. I was blown away when Chris provided each of us with his contact information and told us not to hesitate to contact him if we ever had any questions or were looking for advice.

Although attending the game and tour was incredible, the biggest value of the event came from picking the brain of Chris McKenzie and building a great connection. Overall this was an excellent opportunity for all of those in attendance to gain exposure to an aspect of Physical Therapy that is rarely seen, and to make a great contact with a passionate and driven professional.
