Introducing the new blog

Hi everyone. Welcome to our new blog experiment.

I'm Brian McKiernan and I'm the chair of the Department of Physical Therapy Education at Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri.

As I sit looking at the stack of news that we want to communicate to our students, faculty, alumni and friends, it occurs to me that the old paper newsletter that we have relied on for over a decade may have outlived its usefulness.

We have a literal ton of "good stuff" going on here in our department. Our faculty are leaders in almost every aspect of PT and our students are as spectacular as always. However, we (I?) missed our deadlines for mailing the paper newsletters last year, so I thought it would be a better idea to publish our good news as it comes up rather than saving it for a newsletter that may or may not come.  :-)

Stay tuned. Subscribe. Check back often. Add us to your RSS feeds. Whatever it takes...this is going to be great!
