Intern of the Week

Senior Sarah Tourney has been selected to receive the Norwell High School Internship Spotlight award. She has been doing her experience at Indiana Physical Therapy in Decatur with mentor and PT Ed Ball. Sarah is the daughter of Jerome and Robin Tourney.

Through her internship, Sarah has learned how the anatomy of the body responds to physical therapy and equipment. She has observed the importance of patient interaction when teaching exercises that will help the patients recuperate from their injuries and/or surgeries. Sarah has also pitched in to help with laundry, getting ice bags ready, and cleaning equipment.

After graduation, Sarah plans to attend Spring Arbor University in Michigan to study exercise science and play softball. Her ultimate goal is to become a physical therapist which may take about seven years.
