Our members have been busy! Last Summer, a few of our members provided updates on their research on Light Therapy at the Paralyzed Veterans of America Summit. Joe Berman, Cheryl Lasselle, and Eddie Monroy gave a presentation titled “Update on Light Therapy for Wound Healing.” This presentation included results from their Veterans Administration research and they continue to work toward completing their paper on the work they’ve done over the past couple of years. We will keep you posted on when this is published.
At the MPTA Fall Meeting on Saturday, September 23rd, two of our Academy members were presented awards. Jeremy Foster, PTA was presented with the PTA of the Year Award. The Ben Piazza Outstanding Physical Therapist Award was awarded to Carmen Cooper Oguz PT, DPT, MBA, CWS, WCC. These two members are not only active in the ACEWM but also hold positions with with Mississippi PT Association. Please join us to congratulate these two! We are proud to have them as members of the Academy.
