  • Continuing Education Should Be Evidence-Based

    I'm a peer reviewer for the Texas continuing education program. I review submissions for neuro, geriatric, acute and general so I get to see a lot what is being proposed for continuing education. Texas has a specific form that must be completed for each course submitted for review. It includes speaker qualifications, specific goals, a statement of ...

  • Volunteering

    Every so often, I receive an email asking for volunteers to assist with a project or sit on a committee. The majority of them come from the Texas Physical Therapy Association (TPTA).

  • The Results of Getting Involved

    It's been several months since I was elected as a board member to the Southeast District (SED) of the TPTA. Another meeting is coming up this week. I have nothing to report. That isn't particularly surprising since I only have two responsibilities; the spring and fall student socials. Next month will be different. Meanwhile I've had time to ...
