Second Year Students Are a Hit at Math and Science Night

Second year PT students Hope Gregory (PT '14), Gracia Matlack (PT '14) and Mellony Meister (PT '14) we a hit on Science and Math Night at Brookwood Elementary School (Leawood, KS)

PT faculty member Marcie Swift, PT, PhD recruited the students for the January 31st event and helped them organize information and a series of activities related to human movement and the principles of physical therapy care.

The PT students set up shop in a classroom and interacted with both elementary-aged students and their parents.

Marcie reports that children and parents alike were fascinated by the information presented by our PT students. She said that many parents had a tough time getting their children to move on to other rooms to see other exhibits because they were so engrossed in the PT presentation.

Way to go Hope, Gracia and Mellony! You are living examples of the spirit of service we cultivate in our students and our program.
