After graduation, Chandler returned to the Tidewater area and began working with Bon Secours Health System, contracted to Churchland High School. He knew he wanted to be an athletic trainer, but was not always sure of what population he wanted to work with until one experience helped make that decision easier: Clinic-Outreach.</p><p> “As a part of our curriculum, all seniors are required to volunteer for a local AAU wrestling tournament to better understand the role athletic trainers play in the clinical outreach setting. During this experience, the senior students are given a taste of preparing for a large-scale event and managing anything that happens during the tournament. This experience helped me find what population I enjoyed being an Athletic Trainer for the most. I cannot wait to start my new job and implement things I have learned even just from that single experience alone.” </p></div><a href="/live/profiles/2080-chandler-copeland" class="link-with-arrow gold">Keep reading</a></div>
