#CSM2014 is right around the corner and if not prepared, CSM can be quite an overwhelming experience for the novice conference goer. CSM has been compared to a marathon- an event that requires both mental and physical preparations but one that leaves the participant with an unforgettable adrenaline rush and a life altering sense of accomplishment. Consider this weeks #DPTstudent chat your last “long run” before the big race as we talk all about “Thriving and Surviving” at #CSM2014!

CSM is the LARGEST gathering of physical therapy professional and students and so it would only be fitting that this weeks #DPTstudent chat is the BIGGEST one yet. This week we will be bringing you, the #DPTstudent(s), a LIVE Google hangout and dual twitter tweetchat to capture what we hope will be the largest audience to date! Joining us for the LIVE Google hangout will be APTA Director and @APTASA BoD liaison Kathy Mairella (@KathyMairella), as well as Twitter guru and conference veteran Jerry Durham (@Jerry_DurhamPT). The chat will be full of helpful hints for program selection, time management, networking advice and tips for making the most of your time at #CSM2014!!

Be sure to keep an eye out for the link to the LIVE feed via twitter and the “Doctor of Physical Therapy Students” Facebook page, minutes before the chat at 9pm EST on Wednesday January 29th! Looking forward to what WILL be an amazing #CSM2014!!
