Hearing from a Hog is a Student Alumni Association exclusive program that allows students to meet with alumni in their desired career field. Recently, our friends Bill and Lisa Miller hosted a dinner for students interested in health professions.
I really enjoyed visiting the home of Bill and Lisa Miller this past week through the Student Alumni Board. As a Kinesiology major with the intentions of going to Physical Therapy school when I graduate, I appreciated the opportunity to meet such an influential couple in our community. Being in the home health business, they were able to answer any and all of my questions regarding physical therapy to the home health system, which is rapidly growing across the nation. It really encouraged me when Bill spoke about how “being a physical therapist was the best job in the world” and that my degree would be so impactful.
