The Coalition for Disability Access in Health Science and Medical Education had their annual symposium in Washington D.C this April for faculty, Dean’s, disability service providers, and advocates who work with students in Health Sciences and Medical education at Universities across the country. Raziel Rizzo, from the Class of 2020, was selected to speak on a student panel to share her personal experiences with advocacy, creating allies, and education within the realm of students with disabilities pursuing degree’s in health sciences.
This April our very own second year DPT student Jordan Waite attended and presented at The Experimental Biology Meeting in Orlando, Florida alongside Dr. Topp, Dr. Smoot, Dr. Farkas, and Dr. Harmon. He was able to present his research on: Assessing Determinants of Musculoskeletal Anatomy Success in First-year Physical Therapy Students. During the conference he was able to expand his knowledge within the community of anatomy and education, which he is eager to continue pursuing.
Congratulations to Erin Green, PT, DPT, on receiving the UCSF Campaign Alumni Award for Outstanding Achievement!
