Highland Athletic Club 

Atlanta Medical Center Physical Therapy Assistant Dawn Harrison can be found most weekdays at noon in a step aerobics class at Highland Athletic Club. For her, the class offers a way to relieve stress and stay fit. The fact that the club is on campus makes it convenient for her to fit exercise into her life.
