NIU DPT Students Participate in DeKalb County Resource Fair

On May 25, 2017, Northern Illinois University (NIU) Doctor of Physical Therapy program participated in the DeKalb County Resource Fair in DeKalb, IL. 

Under the supervision of Dawn Brown, PT, DPT, OCS, a Clinical Assistant Professor and Director of Clinical Education at NIU, first year and prospective NIU DPT students assisted with providing the DeKalb community with information regarding the profession of physical therapy, the NIU DPT program, and the NIU PT Clinic.

Current students were enthusiastic about informing the community about the role of physical therapists and physical therapist assistants in the management of people with movement impairments and functional limitations due to various conditions and diseases.  The prospective students were enthusiastic to know that the students in the NIU DPT program had such a wide base of knowledge when interaction with the community. 

They were reassured that their professional career choice to become a physical therapist was well validated after having attended the fair.

The IPTA supplied physical therapy related giveaways for the people who stopped by the NIU DPT table.  Due to this positive experience, NIU DPT will participate in future events to market the physical therapy profession and NIU DPT!
