Saturday, April 17th the Emory DPT Program will join other health professions students in hosting tables at the Westside Atlanta Health Fair. The fair will include educational information, festive activities, health screenings & more. Physical therapy student and faculty volunteers will screen community members for balance problems and risk of falls & provide educational information about preventing falls & physical activity. This event is student initiated and faculty supervised. So come out and support the students as well as the Atlanta community.
