To cap the spring semester, second-year Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) students presented six social entrepreneurship initiatives to bring their professional skills into community service.
The projects were the culmination of Assistant Professor of Physical Therapy Will Kolb’s 864 Health Policy and Administration class and were semester-long group projects which teamed the DPT students with a community partner to negotiate, plan and implement a health-related service or product to fill a community health need as determined by the students and their mentors.
According to Kolb, the exercise prepared the students for the challenges of leadership and benefitted the students’ community or profession of physical therapy. The projects culminated in a mock grant presentation on May 2.
