DPT Program offering FREE Pediatric Physical Therapy Clinic

The Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program at DeSales University along with Good Shepherd Rehabilitation will be hosting pediatric pro bono clinics this fall from October 24-December 7, 2018.   Physical therapy treatments will be provided free of charge by second year DPT students under the direct supervision of state licensed physical therapy faculty members.

The program is seeking volunteer pediatric clients to participate in the clinic who have a neurological condition or developmental delay or disability.   The clinic hopes to serve those that still require treatment, but have no insurance benefits, cannot afford physical therapy co-payments, or have reached the cap on the number of treatment visits permitted by their insurance carrier.

Appointments will be scheduled at either DeSales University main campus or Good Shepherd Physical Therapy in Center Valley.

  • DeSales University, Center Valley: Wednesdays 1-4 pm October 24-December 5, 2018
  • Good Shepherd Physical Therapy Center Valley: Fridays 9:00 am-12:00 pm October 26-December 7, 2018

Please note, there will be no clinics the week of Thanksgiving (November 21st  & November 23rd).

For additional information or to register for an appointment, contact Sue Migliore at Suzanne.migliore@desales.edu or 610-282-1100  x2145

Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Student Seminar

Six DeSales students, Corey Screven (’20 Psychology), Samantha Mullin (’20 Biology), Elizabeth Godfrey (’20 Medical Studies), Graziella Greco (’20 Biology), Rebecca Cervantes (‘19 Biology), and Veronika Tews (’20 Biology), were selected to participate in the inaugural Natural Science Department Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program.

Alongside the six students were three biology faculty members, Drs. Joshua Slee, Joseph Leese, and Austen Barnett, who each volunteered part of their summer to mentor 2 students in their research labs.

The 8-week program was a tremendous success so please come and listen to each group present their findings from their summer research on Friday, October 19 @ 3:00 in the Hurd Science Center Auditorium.

All are welcome to attend.
