Students are a welcome part of the Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapy and are invited to participate in projects and to join their physical therapy colleagues toward the pursuit of working with older adults. One of the main projects this year was developing and implementing a student brochure contest to create Consumer Brochures. The goal was to promote learning in our physical therapy programs while helping the Academy develop a library of clinical pamphlets to be published on the section's website.
Please include this contest in your syllabi plan. The Section welcomes brochures on topics related to physical therapy and the older adult. We encourage physical therapist and physical therapist assistant students to participate with judging taking place by CSM each year. Winning brochures will receive Section membership for a year AND publishable entrants will become part of the brochure library of the Academy's website. Contact AGPT for more information

PT and PTA students throughout the states are creating consumer/client instructional materials. Brochures created over the past three years are available on our website, and are a valuable resource to the clients we serve.
