Beth Hughes - APTA Missouri's 1st Centennial Scholar

Meet Beth Hughes - Selected to Serve as Missouri's First Centennial Scholar


The APTA Centennial Scholars Program is designed to build a cadre of future association leaders at both the chapter/section/academy and national levels. Demonstrating APTA’s investment in the sustainability of the association as it begins its next 100 years, the program will support our collective quest for a diverse and prepared leadership pool.

The 12-month program will run throughout 2021 with a goal of engaging 100 scholars, including the goal of at least one scholar sponsored by each of APTA’s chapters, sections, and academies.  Beth Hughes was chosen by a diverse panel of APTA Missouri members after an extensive application review process.


Meet Beth Hughes:


Since graduating from Saint Louis University in 2018, Beth has worked full-time as a physical therapist for the SSM Day Institute and part-time at the Rehabilitation Hospital. She sees a diverse patient population in her roles, but primarily works to improve the lives of the stroke, neurodegenerative disease, and cancer rehab populations.

As a ReVital Cancer Specialist, her knowledge provides her with the necessary skills needed to address the unique challenges cancer patients face pre- and post-treatment. Outside of her clinical care, Beth is also interested in community-based rehab models, relying on her experience in Belize, El Salvador, and St. Louis City to serve as an advocate for marginalized and low-income populations.

In her free time, she enjoys hiking, traveling, exploring new places and restaurants, and spending time with family and friends. Beth looks forward to serving as APTA Missouri’s Centennial Scholar and uplifting and improving the overall profession.
