To bring awareness to the benefits of physical therapy, 51 UWM Doctor of Physical Therapy students and faculty participated in Wisconsin Physical Therapy Association Legislative Day. Students talked to their legislators about a variety of topics including the role of physical therapy in addressing the opioid epidemic and the importance of allowing physical therapists to practice across state lines.
