Thank you, Raziel Rizzo (DPT 2020) and Elise Tarrant (DPT 2015, and PT Orthopedic Resident Class of 2018), for representing our department and our profession with your informative and inspirational words and photos! This wonderful project was created for the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Disability Issues, highlighting how one's unique challenges provide perspective on one’s work, shape our lives, and make us better people.

On July 13, 2018, the physical therapy community said goodbye to a dear friend and alumnus of UCSF/SFSU, Peter I. Edgelow, PT, MA, DPT. Peter earned the reputation as the expert physical therapist in treating patients with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS). He improved the lives of thousands of patients with intractable pain and inspired physical therapists and others around the world. Peter developed the ENVEST (Edgelow Neurovascular Entrapment Syndrome Treatment) approach, working closely with David Butler and Lorimer Moseley to further refine it.
