  • Lunch and Learn: Hospital-Based Exercise

    Get insights on a study of a hospital-based exercise program and its outcomes in older adults when the Osteoarthritis Action Alliance (OAAA) hosts another in its series of free "lunch and learn" webinars on Wednesday, October 15.

    The 30-minute program will feature presenters from the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Speakers will cover design, implementation, and assessment of the program in terms of individual outcomes and community impact.

    The session will begin at 12:00 pm ET, and online registration is now open. The slide presentation for the session can be accessed in advance, and OAAA archives its webinars for viewing at a later time.

    APTA is a member of OAAA.

    • I'm a little confused as to why the APTA is promoting this program when no PTs were involved, at least as far as I can tell. If anything, it seems to illustrate that high quality exercise programs for older adults are being designed and implemented by non-PTs. What am I missing?
