HPW Student Internship Experience – Jake Damask Fall 17′
Interning at QuadMed has been eye opening and also a learning experience. While working for QuadMed I have been primarily stationed in Wausau at the Greenheck Onsite Health Center. During my internship I have had varying responsibilities. These responsibilities have included: wellness coaching, personal training, group exercise instructing, exercise prescription, fitness center orientations, running tobacco cessation classes and helped facilitate the maintain don’t gain program. Most of these relied around teaching individuals healthy lifestyle habits and keeping them accountable. As a wellness coach you work with all types of people who come from different backgrounds and require their own personal health program. Working in such situations has helped me grow as a health professional and allowed me to utilize the information I have learned from the HPW program at UW-Stevens Point.
