Establishing athletic therapy at UWinnipeg

Over the last 30-years, Glen Bergeron and Ben Trunzo have been the face of Athletic Therapy at The University of Winnipeg. Although they arrived at the University at different times, they both played a huge role in setting up the University's accredited Athletic Therapy program through the Canadian Athletic Therapists' Association.

Since the inaugural intake of students in the Fall of 1998, there has been a steady stream of graduates who have gone on to become accomplished certified athletic therapists or have found success in related areas of health and wellness.

The passion they continue to display on a daily basis for treating injuries has allowed Athletic Therapy to become a permanent fixture on campus and led to improved recognition of the profession in Winnipeg and across Canada.

In addition to their significant impact at UWinnipeg, both Bergeron and Trunzo have been a part of numerous international medical committees including the Olympic Games and Pan Am Games, as well as working with several professional and national sports teams.

Bergeron and Trunzo also have a long history of serving on numerous committees and boards, where they have demonstrated exceptional leadership and commitment to the profession of Athletic Therapy.

They are both ambassadors for the UWinnipeg and the profession of Athletic Therapy, who will continue to have a significant impact in the community for many years to come.
