D.P.T. Class of 2019 Share Their Good Works at Community Service Presentations

Four students of the D.P.T. Class of 2019 present at Community Service Presentations Day

Community service projects carried out by Doctor of Physical Therapy (D.P.T.) students in the School of Health Sciences are a win-win. Students learn important lessons in planning, executing and assessing an activity that addresses a local or underserved community need and a host of beneficiaries gain from their hard work, skills and knowledge. This year, the D.P.T. Class of 2019 shared their community service projects and outcomes with the College community, on November 30 in Nevins Auditorium. They also gave first-hand and sage advice to members of the D.P.T. Class of 2020 who will build upon the success of the projects and expand their scope. Innovations to this year’s projects included creating a video of the Race for Rehab course that was available for participants to view prior to the race and developing a breathing and relaxation technique brochure and assembling toiletry care packages for My Sister’s Place, an organization that provides shelter and services to battered women and their children and victims of human trafficking.
