Physical Therapy Students Showcase their Research

From left to right: NSU physical therapy students David Palo, Giancarlos Pizzi, and Melissa Corrao pose in front of their poster project titled “Characteristics of Anterior Shoulder Instability in the Recreational Weight-Training Population.” The trio won the award for best presentation.

About 50 students from NSU’s College of Allied Health and Nursing’s Physical Therapy Program showcased their research capstone projects on Aug. 9 with a poster presentation in front of the Health Profession Division’s Steele Auditorium.

The doctor of physical therapy program seniors worked for over a year, under the supervision of faculty advisors, to conduct research projects that answer basic or clinical research questions. The capstone is a research project that requires students to apply knowledge learned in their research courses to an actual research project. Some of the projects will likely contribute to the body of knowledge in physical therapy, be published or presented. Morey Kolber, PT, Ph.D., assistant professor of physical therapy, served as the students’ faculty adviser.
