Physical therapy leader and Catherine Worthingham Fellow Geneva Johnson, PhD, PT, FAPTA was recognized last week when the University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) School of Physical Therapy renamed its library in her honor. The new Geneva R. Johnson Library will include her own holdings as well as materials being received from Case Western Reserve University in Ohio, where she served as the program's first director of the master's program.
Dedication ceremonies took place on November 8 at the library, located on the UIW campus in San Antonio, Texas. Johnson has been an APTA leader for many years, having served in numerous positions including as a member of the CAPTE review panel, the association's history committee, and in official capacities at the Iowa, Texas, Georgia, and Ohio chapters. In her work as a physical therapy educator, Johnson's many contributions were instrumental in reshaping curriculum and refining clinical supervision.
In its online announcement of the library dedication, the UIW School of Physical Therapy described Johnson as an inspirational figure in the profession. The posting quoted Johnson as saying that "physical therapy is the work of our hands, of our head, and of our heart," and stated that the library in her name will help students "incorporate this philosophy in their personal and professional lives."
