By invitation, Dr. John S. Halle, professor and associate dean of the School of Physical Therapy, recently participated in the first Physical Therapy and Society Summit (PASS) held in Leesburg, Virginia. Hosted by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), the mission of the event was to determine areas of opportunity to empower physical therapists to be leaders in: 1) integrating innovative technologies and practice models, and 2) establishing collaborative multidisciplinary partnerships that address current, evolving and future societal health care needs. Assumptions associated with the meeting were that from a policy standpoint, healthcare in the United States is at a tipping point, and physical therapy as a profession has a clear role to play in the policies developed in the future.
