NWRA would like to proudly announce that Mike Studer has received the 2011 American Physical Therapy Association Neurology Section Award for Clinical Excellence. Mike noted, “This is the highest honor that can be received for a neurologic PT. I am honored to receive this award. I put a lot of energy into finding a way to help each person that I see – using evidence and innovation together to individualize a program to maximize their recovery. Every day, we receive the rewards of improvement in our patients – this and the unknown aspects of rehabilitation, are what continue to push me along.”
Mike and colleague Brady Whetten, PT, DPT presented two programs at the recent Combined Sections Meeting in New Orleans. The presentations, Intensity and Dosage in Geriatric Physical Therapy and A PT’s Guide to Screening and Reducing Fall Risk in Clients with Mild Cognitive Impairment, were well received.
