University of Iowa Education Summit

Date: 09 / 20 / 2019
Time: 7:00 AM
Location: Iowa City, Iowa

Event Information:

Physical Therapists are experts in the prescription of exercise and are embedded in communities throughout rural Iowa. We believe that our profession can play a critical role in reversing Iowa's dangerous movement toward the top of the nation's obesity statistics. This new priority, however, would require bold leadership and intense commitment by clinicians, educators, and policy-makers. The 2019 Iowa Education Summit will consider the potential role that physical therapists may play in reversing rural Iowa's obesity epidemic. We have assembled an outstanding roster of presenters including Iowa legislators, rural health physical therapists, and leadership from APTA, IPTA, academic programs, and clinical practice. Attendees and presenters at the Summit will identify the major barriers to exercise-based health initiatives and will offer solutions to move the citizens of Iowa to a healthier "state of well being".
 
Summit attendees, alumni, and guests are invited to attend the 4th-annual Iowa Physical Therapy Golf Outing and Social following the Summit.
