Students are a welcome part of APTA Geriatrics and are encouraged to participate in projects and join their physical therapy colleagues toward the pursuit of working with older adults.
For several years, APTA Geriatrics developed and implemented a consumer brochure contest, in which students submitted original art and content. The goal was to promote learning in our physical therapy programs while helping APTA Geriatrics develop a library of clinical pamphlets to be published on the its website.
This year, we're changing it up! The Consumer Brochure contest is now the Consumer Video Contest. Find out more below.
Please include this contest in your syllabi plan. The Academy welcomes videos on topics related to physical therapy and the older adult and encourages physical therapist and physical therapist assistant students to participate. Judging takes prior to the Combined Section Meeting. Winning videos will receive APTA Geriatrics membership for a year and publishable entrants will become part of the video library of the on the APTA Geriatrics YouTube channel and website. Contact Rachel Connor at [email protected] for more information.
