PTs: “See What The Sunshine Can Do For You!”
When you think of Florida do you envision orange groves, Mickey Mouse, rocketships and sunny skies. Florida is that and much more! With the longest coastline in mainland America and bordered by three major bodies of water, Florida is a sportsman’s paradise for boating, fishing, golf, tennis, etc. Every spring, the cracks of National and American League bats echo through towns like Port Charlotte and Port St. Lucie. It is also home to the “Blue Angels” aerobatic team in Pensacola and swamp buggy races in Naples, and every year, Leesburg plays host to “Bikefest”, a celebration of everything motorcycle.
The low-lying south, gives way to rolling hills in the central and northern portions of the state, albeit still not very high above sea level. Relative homogeneity, however, does not extend to Florida’s demographics. A multi-cultural population of Native Americans, Hispanics, African-Americans and Europeans have created a rich tapestry which influences every aspect of life. Florida’s small town history is literally painted on the walls Lake Placid. The story of early pioneers from the 20’s-30’s can be touched at the home of the authoress of “The Yearling” in Gainesville. At Lakeland, the state’s connection to American aviation is on full display along with Howard Hughes’ personal collection of planes. From Melbourne, it is just a short drive to the hub of space exploration which is The Kennedy Center.
Florida has always had a reputation as the place to move to, but a University of Florida Bureau of Economic and Business Research telephone survey found that jobs played a more significant role in that decision than weather or retirement. Come discover the great opportunities the “Sunshine State” has available for healthcare professionals, particularly Physical Therapists.
