Elon University’s Department of Physical Therapy Education program had a strong showing at the APTA Combined Sections Meeting by its third-year DPT students, sports-PT resident, alumni and faculty members.
Elon’s DPT program had seven core faculty members and over 20 students and alumni attend the meeting in San Diego, California. It was a great conference and Elon was well-represented.
Over 50 students, graduates, faculty and friends of the program attended the Elon University DPTE reception. It was another fun gathering and the DPTE and the Office of Alumni Engagement provided giveaways. The night was extra special because it was the first time the DPTE was able to host the annual Elon reception since the start of the pandemic.
26 faculty, student and alumni presented (educational sessions, posters, and platform presentations) in the following sections: Sports (8), Research (2), Pediatrics (1), Orthopaedics/spine (1), Oncology (1), Geriatrics (1), Education (1), and Cardiovascular & Pulmonary (1)
Shefali Christopher received the Research Award in recognition of exceptional service in research from the APTA Academy of Pelvic Health.
