The Robert Livengood Student Research Forum at UT.October 14th, 2012
The Robert Livengood Research Forum at UT is a night that represents the culmination of hard work, dedication, and excellence. The night is dedicated to third year DPT students and the research they had conducted. As I walked around the student research boards I listened in amazement as the students spoke of the research they had dedicated the past two years to. The night consisted of poster presentations as well as platform presentations. The posters included research ranging from Promoting Tummy Time in Childcare Facilities to Obesity-Induced Hypertension. Platform presentations were given to an audience of students, current and retired physical therapists as well as community and family supporters. The platform presentations touched on topics such as Parkinson’s disease, neck posture, and interprofessional team leadership skills. Attending the forum gave a quick glimpse of where I will be in two years and to be honest it was a bit intimidating, but I am definitely looking forward to the journey. Last but not least, CONGRATULATIONS to the class of 2013!!!
