Washington Redskins training camp is relocating to Richmond this summer and with it comes a tremendous opportunity for students at ECPI University’s School of Health Science, Medical Careers Institute. When campus officials learned the team was interested in selecting a local massage school as a partner, they quickly developed a proposal and the Redskins accepted it.
“To have the opportunity to work on world class athletes is extraordinary,” says Massage Therapy Program Director Ed Simpson who will be overseeing the clinic during training camp. “You cannot replicate this type of learning experience in the classroom. These athletes are built to perform. Their muscles and physiques are unique, which offers a great learning experience for our students.”
