“This opportunity was one I will not soon forget…Serving with @movetogetherinc to treat over 150 patients across all age groups throughout underserved communities in Guatemala was a transformative experience. Most of these people had never seen a health professional in their life. Accessing quality rehab services is challenging for members of these communities, and they were so warm & welcoming to our team. It was inspiring to watch clinicians, students, & volunteers all operate under a shared mission… to improve lives through movement. Kids learned how to walk, teens learned how to recover after an injury, and adults learned how to finally get rid of musculoskeletal pain that they had lived with for years. Smiles were brought to people‘s faces, tears brought to people’s eyes, and hope brought to people’s futures. I’m so grateful to now view my clinical training as a gift – a gift that should be given back to society as frequently as possible. In this way, we can work towards healthier movement for a healthier world.”
- Scott McAfee (DPT ‘16)

Thank you Dr. Rowley for your presentation on the LGBTQQIA+ community and to those who contributed to the thought-provoking discussion! ▪️Below are a few quotes from our PTMLA members on their takeaways from this evening▪️
•"Dr. Rowley did an incredible job. The event was very informative. I'm so happy he took the time to come talk to us." -Michelle Metevier, DPT II
•"My takeaway is to be aware of using neutral pronouns until clarified, even if we aren't talking directly to the person, so this will further become a societal norm" -Teresa Serrano, DPT II

Why PT: My grandmother was a social worker and my mother is an OT which inspired me to go into PT. The way that they helped others inspired me to go into this profession and help others.
▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
Community Influence: When I look at the disparities between affluent and low income communities, I see my opportunity to help those who need PT. PT can fill the void in healthcare for low income individuals.
▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
When I’m a PT: I am going to keep an open mind and see what area I’m truly interested in. My heart is leaning more towards orthopedics.

Why PT: I am Taiko drummer and have been for a while. While I was in undergrad, I was able to observe the beauty of taiko drummer movement which led me to discover PT. PT encompasses movement observation and hands on skills which is something I like.
▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
Community Influence: My whole family is in healthcare. My mother is a nurse, my father is an administrator at a health clinic, and my grandparents owned a drugstore in Taiwan. So it was only natural that I followed their footsteps into the health industry.
▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
When I’m a PT: I want to do orthopedics with a focus on performing arts. In the future, I want to develop physical therapy for taiko drummers and develop my manual skills.

Why PT: I chose PT because it’s a profession where I can give back to those who can’t necessarily afford PT. It is also a way for me to connect and get to know people.
▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
Community Influence: I come from a community of slightly underserved people where PT was not readily available. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
When I’m a PT: I want to work at a small clinic back home where I can give back to the underserved community. I would also like to work with youth athletes.
