APTA Student Social: Why Representation Matters in Physical Therapy
|Date:||June 13, 2021|
|Time:||8 p.m.-9 p.m. ET|
Free to APTA Members
Our monthly student social is a fun twist on the standard Zoom webinar – mixing expert discussion with live, camera-on Q&A with participants.
This month's discussion is around about the lack of diversity in the physical therapy profession and how students can use their voices now to represent minority populations in physical therapy.
The APTA Student Assembly Board of Directors strive to "empower and inspire our diverse student community to use their voices to lead and advance the profession," as written in our 2020-21 Strategic Plan.
Please join us for a discussion with Barnett "Barney" Keitt, PTA, MPH, and Carmen Elliott, MS, CAE, about the lack of diversity in the physical therapy profession and how students can use their voices now to represent minority populations in physical therapy.
Barnett "Barney" Keitt, PTA, MPH
Carmen Elliott, MS, CAE
Registration Deadline: Sunday, June 12
