Jennifer L. Hale, clinical assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at Texas State University, has completed the Physical Therapy Faculty Program at the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Physical Therapy Faculty Program is a pilot “train the trainer” program designed to improve physical therapy care in Parkinson’s disease.

During the four-day course, physical therapy educators immersed themselves in learning about the latest evidence-based findings in Parkinson’s research and care so they can, in turn, educate physical therapy students. By bringing this knowledge back to their students, physical therapy educators can make a great impact on the lives of people living with Parkinson’s disease.

Hale also serves as director of the Neurologic Physical Therapy Residency Program at Texas State.
