Anna Edwards, PT, Class of 1967, a member of the UCSF Alumni Association, this year chairs the committee that makes decisions about Alumni Weekend. Anna completed her BS in Physical Therapy from UCSF, MA in Exercise Physiology and Masters of Business Administration from San Diego State University, and DPT from the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences. Anna had a long career as a faculty member at St. Augustine, and an even longer career serving the physical therapy profession. Among her many contributions were serving on the CA Chapter Board and as CA delegate to the APTA House of Delegates, serving on the APTA Board of the Section on Health Policy and Administration, and working to initiate the LAMP Institute for Leadership and Physical Therapy. Her awards are numerous, and include the CPTA Charles Magistro Service Award and the HPA Lamp Lighter Leadership Award. Anecdotally, Anna was Kimberly Topp’s first boss in physical therapy practice at Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego!
Anna, Kim and new AAUCSF Board member, Jennifer Kinder (2010), will be working with UCSF Graduate Division Board member, Lowen Cattolico (2003), to engage more physical therapy alumni in program activities. The 2020 Alumni Weekend will take place at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero June 5th and 6th. Mark your calendar and look of other opportunities for physical therapy alumni to connect.
