    The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), Alexandria, Va., issued a press release on Tuesday supporting a groundbreaking action taken last week by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP).

  • My First Direct Patient Experience

    On Tuesday my class traveled to a local senior center to do a community screening. Our class of 51 was divided into groups of three students and we were assigned a patient. We weren't given any background aside from what we gathered from the patient. After completing a history, balance, strength, ROM and various other screens, we were left with a ...

  • Interpreters

    I had my first evaluation via interpreter this week, leaving me certain that I'll attempt to learn Spanish when I'm done with school. There are a few things that I realized when the interpreter was translating the eval. First of all, interview ''cadence'' is not something you usually think about.

  • The Year in Review

    As this year comes to a close, I'd like to reflect on a most productive, busy and emotional past 12 months. Final grades have arrived this morning for the fall semester of the DPT program. My capstone project will begin very soon. After narrowing down my choices to two patients, this week I came across two more interesting patients who are ...
