Back to Top PREPaRE Conference

The Fourth Annual Conference on Meeting the Therapy Needs of Infants, Toddlers and Children with Disabilities in Rural Communities will be held on Saturday, March 9 at CHS. This conference focuses on serving the needs of rural occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech-language pathologists who desire increased competency in the provision of evidence-based practice service delivery and increased understanding of diversity issues for infants, toddlers and children with disabilities in early intervention or school-based settings.  

The major focus of this conference is on the intersection of Policy, Advocacy, and the Best Practice of Related Services Personnel. A summary and the specific objectives for each session are provided in the conference schedule.

Back to Top DPT Candidates to Present at National PT Conference

Several DPT candidates, mentored by Dr. Brian Noehren, will present results of their research at the annual combined sections meeting of the American Physical Therapy Association. Their now published research was accomplished while they were still students, which is no small feat! The meeting is the largest of physical therapists in the U.S., with over 10,000 participants. The meeting will be held in San Diego. Their research focused on how trained distance runners potentially run differently than beginners. The research produced three clinical tests that were validated and will be of utility to their profession. Congratulations to Katelyn Ackerman, Katie Grim, Kristen Meister, Lauren Nicholson and Kelsey Pence.

Several CHS PT faculty will be attending and presenting at the conference. Click here for a schedule of their presentations.
