Clarkson University Physical Therapy Department Hosts Seminar For North Country Healthcare Community
The Clarkson University Department of Physical Therapy recently hosted a seminar for the benefit of the North Country healthcare community on the prevention and management of osteoporosis and cardiovascular disorders.
More than 40 physical therapists, students and healthcare professionals attended the half-day seminar that featured Marilyn Moffat, professor of physical therapy at New York University, past president of the American Physical Therapy Association, and an award-winning leader in the field of rehabilitation.
Moffat led three workshops that looked at the latest medical research on osteoporosis prevention and management, the prevention and risk management of cardiovascular disorders, and the role of physical therapy in the 21st century.
“We were very pleased with the response and turn out from the healthcare community,” said Sam Feitelberg, associate dean and chair of the Department of Physical Therapy at Clarkson. “Programs such as this provide a valuable opportunity for physical therapists and healthcare professionals to gain and exchange valuable, up-to-date medical information. We will continue to sponsor seminars for the benefit of the medical community.”
Clarkson’s Physical Therapy program serves as a resource for the North Country medical and healthcare community through its speakers, educational programs and medical library. The Master of Physical Therapy Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education of the American Physical Therapy Association. The program graduated its first class in December 2001.
