The Terrebonne General Medical Center Community Sports Institute was created to impact future generations through the promotion of healthcare education and disease prevention, along with athletic injury prevention and post-care. The team works with the local school system beginning at the elementary level and throughout high school to teach health education and promote healthy habits. Community Sports Institute and our athletic trainers have been recognized by the Houma-Terrebonne Chamber of Commerce for volunteer contributions and services to the Terrebonne Parish community.
This program will support teachers in educating students on healthy strategies, allowing students to gain exposure to healthcare experts while supporting the coaches and athletes in medical assistance and proper techniques needed to prevent injuries while on the field. This partnership is also inclusive of elementary and junior high schools.
Since its inception in January of 2014, TGMC Community Sports Institute has had a huge impact on our community:
TGMC is a proud community partner with the school system, recreational department and all athletes to educate the faculty and students who are the future leaders of our community.
