September 2019 Student Spotlight
Share |


"The Best way to predict your Future is to create it."

Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States 


The MPTA places tremendous value on our student members. The student members of today will become the future leaders of our organization. Our student members are truly creating their own future; at a very early stage in their careers they see the value in their professional organization.


Each month the MPTA will place a spotlight on one of our tremendous student physical therapists or student physical therapist assistants. Please contact Jessica Gronewold, MPTA Social Media Chair, if you would like to recommend a student for our Spotlight page.
