EXP Master's student Alex Hunt had the opportunity to attend the Minnesota Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (MNACVPR) Conference on a scholarship April 26 & 27, 2018. When asked to reflect about his experience, this is what he had to say, " Attending the MNACVPR conference was one of the most eye-opening experiences I have had in the exercise physiology field. Connecting with health care professionals from all the around the state and learning the huge array of topics had two significant impacts on me. One was the knowledge gained in areas ranging from treating pulmonary hypertension to PCSK9 inhibitors. The other impact was that even after finishing this program, there will always be more material to learn and continue being a student even after graduation. I am very thankful for the scholarship opportunity to attend this conference and would highly recommend this conference to others."
