I would like to extend a sincere and humble thank you, going out to the friends, family, colleagues and fans of NWRA. I, Mike Studer, am writing this blog and am honored to report that I have received the 2014 Clinical Excellence Award from the Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapy (formerly Geriatric Section) of the American Physical Therapy Association. This award would not be possible without my wife, my family (at home and NWRA) and my colleagues. The nomination and supporting letters were enough to bring me to tears. Thank you all. Know that I will continue to push myself in clinical practice and beyond, toward more excellence – – the bar just goes up again!
