On Sunday, October 23, 18 of our students and several faculty members gathered for the first Emory Physical Therapy Phonathon, calling our alums on behalf of the Emory Physical Therapy Program.
A key part of our mission at the Emory Physical Therapy Program is to train the next generation of exceptional physical therapists and generate new knowledge for the practice of physical therapy. Our students are committed to their studies and prolific in their quest for new knowledge through scholarship and research. This year’s phonathon pledges will go toward a scholarship fund that will provide students with support to relieve part of the financial burden of graduate school.
“Last year we reached out to alumni through a hand-written mailing from current students to alumni,” says Beth Davis, PT, DPT, MBA, assistant professor and chair of the alumni/marketing/PR committee. “We got some increase in alumni response, but we are hoping for more this year. It is important that we build up our scholarship funds. Our goal this year is to have 100% participation.”
Indeed, competition for the best and brightest students is stiff. To lure these candidates, scholarship funds are essential. If you want to contribute to this worthwhile cause, go to www.emory.edu/give and select “Health Professions” from the first menu, “Physical Therapy” from the second menu, and continue to follow the online form. Please make your annual gift today.
