Calling all physical therapists re: DMU’s 2018 Stroke Camp

Stroke Camp participants gain intensive, individualized treatment.

If you are a physical or occupational therapist serving clients post-stroke, consider participating in DMU’s seventh annual Stroke Camp on campus Aug. 20-24. You can make a powerful difference to patients and students while learning and earning up to four continuing education contact hours for yourself.

Encourage your patients to participate in this free event, too. Intensive, individualized physical therapy can help stroke survivors improve their gait, balance, strength and dexterity. Your patients will work with a team of DMU physical therapy students, faculty and supervising physicians who will plan therapy sessions customized to meet their needs. Each participant also will receive a post-camp home exercise plan.

In addition, by joining the camp for a day or more as a supervising clinician, you will benefit patients with stroke and enjoy the rewards of making an invaluable contribution to D.P.T. students. They are excited to learn and practice in this experience; the more supervising therapists at the camp, the more students we can have participate.

To learn more about Stroke Camp, contact Kathy Mercuris, P.T., D.H.S., C/NDT, CEEAA, associate professor of physical therapy, at 515-271-1734 or kathy.mercuris@dmu.edu.
