UPS Faculty and Student CSM Presentations

From faculty research and educational sessions to student investigations and faculty/student collaborative studies, for nearly two decades, the UPS Physical Therapy Program has annually contributed a significant number of presentations to APTA’s Combined Sections Meeting.  This year’s CSM, being held February 15-18 in New Orleans, Louisiana, will see 7 research studies presented by UPS faculty and students along with a preconference course from our program director, Dr. Bob Boyles.  Twelve of our DPT students will have their own research projects and collaborative efforts with PT faculty presented at this national conference.  If you are on hand in New Orleans, check them out!
