Faculty and Students Attend CPTA Student Legislative Day

On Monday, January 29, the third-year DPT students along with faculty members Theresa Jaramillo, PT, MS, DPT, and Casey Nesbit, PT, DPT, DSc, PCS, went to Sacramento for the CPTA Student Legislative Day. The students were treated to great presentations from state and federal leaders in advocacy for our profession, and then were then split into small groups with students from other programs who had similar permanent residency addresses. Alongside mentors, the student groups met with legislators, senators and aides to talk with them about PT and PT education. They also shared some of their thoughts on the potential licensure of athletic trainers and NC-SARA (National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements). It was a great experience, and we're already planning to attend the upcoming Legislative Day in March.  --Theresa Jaramillo
