Physical Therapy Departments Patti Berg Poppe Complete Educational Program for Parkinsons Disease
This program trains a select number of physical therapy instructors from across the nation in the latest evidence-based findings and research about Parkinson’s disease so they can educate physical therapy students. Admission into the program – conducted at Oregon Health and Science University – is highly competitive.
It is important to expand Parkinson's disease physical therapy training and understanding because more than six million Americans now suffer from the disease, and it is expected that number will rise to about 13 million by 2040.
“This was an experience of a lifetime,” said Berg-Poppe. “Not only was I able to spend time with colleagues who have a passion for teaching and research in areas similar to mine, I was able to learn directly from experts and specialists at Oregon Health and Science University, where exciting new evidence for the treatment of movement disorders is emerging. I am eager to pass on what I learned to my students and colleagues at USD.”
