Collegiate Sports Medicine to open RDC location

Collegiate Sports Medicine planning 2,600-square-foot location at college

Red Deer’s Collegiate Sports Medicine plans to open a second location at Red Deer College’s new health and fitness facility.

The partnership evolved after the college went to the community for proposals to use lease space in the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre, which is scheduled to open in fall 2018.

Collegiate Sports Medicine’s 2,600-square-foot facility will focus on teaching, learning and athletic rehabilitation. It will provide opportunities and access for student learning and mentorship in the areas of entrepreneurship, business, kinesiology and therapeutic medicine.

“We are delighted to be able to work more closely with Collegiate Sports Medicine,” says Linda Moore Martin, dean of the School of Health Sciences in a statement.

“This partnership will allow for greater experiential and practicum opportunities for students, collaborations between faculty and staff at Collegiate and will enhance therapy services available to student athletes and the sports community”.

Collegiate Sports owner Melanie Tuck agrees.

“We are extremely proud of our partnership with RDC as it allows us to provide high quality professional services and learning opportunities to RDC students, student athletes and faculty while also serving the community’s needs.

“Our innovative clinic will offer a variety of services including athletic, physio and massage therapy, as well as concussion assessment and rehabilitation, orthotics, running gait assessments and return-to-work programs for disability management.”
