The Southwest District is having a great start to the year! In January, we participated in the Well Expo in Madison for the 5th year in a row. We had a blast testing balance and educating the public about physical therapy. We also welcomed a new Vice Chair, Allison Hodgson, PT and Secretary, Karen Anderson, PTA.
In March, we held a one hour CE, “Total Knee Arthroplasty using Robotic Assisted Technology” by Richard Illgen, MD. Thank you to The American Center for allowing us to use their Bistro for the location of the CE course and business meeting afterwards. An upcoming CE course is underway for April, “ACL Rehabilitation and Return to Sport” by Kelcie Wittman, PT, DPT. Contact Kelcie if you would like to attend the course at email@example.com. Plans for the summer include a Mallards baseball game which will be a “rain check” from last year’s summer social. RSVP to Allison Hodgson, PT at AHodgson@uwhealth.org. We are also planning a new District volleyball tournament this summer for fundraising and to promote membership! Please contact Karen Anderson, PTA at OptimalPT2@gmail.com if you’re interested in playing or volunteering.
Lastly, we have an opening for the membership chair position, anyone that is interested please contact District Chair Jennifer Jeschke, DPT at OptimalPT@gmail.com .
