Graham Sessions 2021 Schedule


Thursday, September 16: Hot-Topic Panel Discussion Hot Topic Panel Discussion: Is the DPT Brand Limiting our Ability to Reach a Broader Base of Potential Clients and Patients?

  • Kelly Starett, PT, DPT
  • Drew Contreras, PT, DPT
  • Stacie Morris, PT, DPT
  • Gabby Reece

The scope of physical therapy continues to drastically expand with widening practice acts, more liberal direct access laws, and targeted branding around movement health. However, the general public still sees physical therapy as just the place you end up after surgery or injury. As the authorities in movement health, should we be seeing clients across the entire movement health lifespan from wellness, strength and conditioning, performance enhancement, to traditional rehabilitation? Or are physical therapists trying to capture too big a net of potential clients to work with and just focus on referral optimization to other wellness professionals such as Strength and Conditioning Coaches and Personal Trainers? In this roundtable discussion we will discuss the opportunities, liabilities, and turf wars involved with physical therapists in the wellness setting.

Friday, October 1: What I Believe Speech Speaker: Sharon Dunn, PT, PhD, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center
