From landing in Portland with welcoming soft jazz in the airport to learning sign language on my way to the convention center because the LIFT driver was completely deaf, I quickly grasped that Portland was full of the perspective that was advertised. Upon registration, I was greeted by a number of the students, clinicians, and professors from all over the country who brought NSC in Portland to life. 


PT Pub Night was a great end to the first night. It was a perfect time to meet a large group of motivated and light-hearted students. I highly recommend everybody attending Pub Night next year!


Bouncing from room to room on Friday & Saturday, I heard a repeated theme. When the researchers, entrepreneurs, and even an Olympic athlete described their experience with physical therapy they spoke of unique opportunities that either advanced the profession, advanced their career and others around them, or elevated their own athleticism to Olympian level. Although each person provided different opportunities through varying perspectives, each story was rooted in physical therapy.


A meeting of passion and action. NSC2017 has provided me with a blend perspective and opportunity. I hope more students will be encouraged to join in the fun next year.
