“The purpose of the Catherine Worthingham Fellow designation (FAPTA) is to honor Dr. Catherine Worthingham and inspire all physical therapists to attain the high level of professional excellence and impact in terms of advancing the profession she exemplified.” The four “excellence domains” of FAPTA designees and nominees are advocacy, education, practice and research.

On August 6, 2014 at 9:00 PM EST we will be LIVE with 3 Catherine Worthingham Fellows:

Pamela Duffy, PT, PhD, RP, OCS, FAPTA (@PamDuffyPT)
Nancy R. Kirsch, PT, DPT, PhD, FAPTA (@KirschNancy)
Rob F. Landel, PT, DPT, OCS, FCFMT, FAPTA (@RLandelDPT)

We will discuss what the designation is, their contributions to the physical therapy professions and how a #DPTstudent can aspire to achieve these four excellence domains. This is the highest honor in the PT profession and we can’t wait to share their valuable experiences with you!

As always, follow the #DPTstudent hashtag on Twitter before the chat to get the link to watch and chime in using the hashtag with questions or comments.
