Second-year DPT student Emily Gee has created a video for the 2016 California Physical Therapy Association (CPTA) video contest. Her video, called "Alive and Kicking," features Emily doing physical therapy with her 94-year-old grandmother, Arlene, helping her to improve mobility and strength. The video was posted on the CPTA Facebook page for all to see, and you can watch it here! Great job, Emily!
