  • Gregory Hicks Appointed to APTA’s Board of Directors

    Gregory Hicks, PT, PhD, FAPTA, has been appointed by the APTA Board of Directors (Board) to complete the leadership term of Sheila K. Nicholson, PT, DPT, MBA, MA, following her death in June this year.

    Hicks, who has been an APTA member for 17 years, is chair of the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Delaware, where he also is director of the school’s Advancing Diversity in Physical Therapy program, known as ADaPT.

    In 2018, Hicks was named a Catherine Worthingham Fellow, APTA’s highest membership category, for demonstrating unwavering efforts to advance the physical therapy profession through leadership, influence, and achievement. Also that year, he received the University of Delaware College of Health Sciences’ inaugural Diversity Advocate Award.

    “My Board colleagues and I are elated that Greg has consented to serve our association,” said APTA President Sharon Dunn, PT, PhD, board-certified orthopaedic clinical specialist. “Greg will bring wisdom, experience, and leadership to help propel our pursuit of APTA’s 3-year strategic plan.”

    Hicks’ Board service begins immediately and ends with the completion of Nicholson’s 3-year term in June 2020, at which point the vacant seat will be filled through the annual slate of candidates process and election by the House of Delegates.

    • Would be nice to post a photo. His individual page has no photo and none of the press releases have included one. There are many of us who may recognize a face even if we’re unfamiliar with the name.
