Speakers set for Physical Therapy Month

Dr. Philip Anloague, director of the University of Dayton’s doctor of physical therapy program, and Trista Cathcart, graduate admissions coordinator, will be guest speakers for Physical Therapy Month celebrated in October.

They will be presenting “Move Forward with a Career in Physical Therapy” at 11 a.m., Oct. 25 in Mathile 112.

The program is sponsored by ONU’s Department of Biological and Allied Health Sciences and the Pre-Physical Therapy and Pre-Occupational Therapy Club.

In addition, club members will be placing posters around campus and taking part volunteer activities at the Equestrian Therapy program at Fassett Farm and the Primrose Retirement Community in Lima.

The Equestrian Therapy Program is a non-profit charitable corporation organized to provide therapeutic horseback riding for the handicapped in the Lima area. Riding is particularly beneficial for students with impaired motor function. The movement of the horse both relaxes and stimulates unused muscles, building muscle tone and improving coordination and balance.

Primrose Retirement Communities, Lima, provide independent living and assisted living senior care with an emphasis on value, comfort, security, and convenience.
