Physical therapy students unable to attend National Student Conclave (NSC), October 24-26, in Louisville, Kentucky, will be able to watch select events live online.
The first livestreamed session, "What It Means to Your Career to Be Connected," features current and former members of APTA's Board of Directors APTA President Paul A. Rockar Jr, PT, DPT, MS; APTA Vice President Sharon Dunn, PT, PhD, OCS; APTA Director Kathy Mairella, PT, DPT, MA; and former APTA Director and Treasurer Connie Hauser, PT, DPT, ATC. Using the "TED-talk" style of conversation and inspired by the life and friendship of the late Dave Pariser, PT, PhD, who was a board director, they will each discuss the importance of involvement with APTA. The 90-minute session is scheduled for Thursday, October 24, with an approximate start time of 5:30 pm, ET.
Also livestreamed will be the Friday, October 25, keynote address, "Transcending Limitation on Disability," by Aaron Scheidies, PT, DPT, who hasn't let a hereditary eye condition stop him from practicing physical therapy or from competing in triathlons and earning 8 paratriathlon national championships. The address is scheduled to begin at 1:00 pm, ET.
Each event will be streamed live, and an archive of the sessions will be available for an additional month. A broadcast schedule and session descriptions can be found on the NSC livestream page.
