Second-Year DPT Students Educate the Community

Second-year DPT students from PT 704: Education, Health Promotion, Wellness, and Prevention in Physical Therapy, developed their own lesson plans and learning objectives, and executed a dynamic one-hour instruction to participants at their assigned community agency. Instructional topics were related to health promotion, wellness, and/or prevention. Students presented their lessons at a variety of agencies and for a wide range of client populations including a high school cross country team, a day program for adults with developmental disabilities, a senior citizen group, a girl empowerment program, a second-grade class, the SFSU students who work at the new gym and wellness center on campus, and a competitive youth rock climbing group.
