Physical Therapy Faculty and Students Convene in Las Vegas
Eleven Research Presentations Delivered at Record-Breaking National Conference
Students and faculty from the School of Health Sciences’ Physical Therapy Program attended the American Physical Therapy Association Annual Meeting in Las Vegas where they presented their poster presentations in February.
The largest national physical therapy conference drew a record 11,331 attendees, speakers and guests, and more than 2,000 exhibitors. Attendees visited hundreds of educational sessions, networked and exchanged ideas. Eighteen specialty sections of the APTA representing different aspects of physical therapy, such as orthopedics and neurology, presented programming at the conference. Thirteen faculty members from Touro’s Department of Physical Therapy submitted 11 poster presentations and all 11 were accepted. The research studies were completed by the faculty members and students from the Class of 2013 who graduated this past September.
