The Level Up Podcast

May 21, 2021

In this episode, we sat down with former APTA president (among many other things) Dr. Marilyn Moffat, who is a very outspoken advocate for embracing stronger Exercise foundation in our curricula as PTs.

She makes a very compelling case for why we should be embracing Exercise over Manual Therapy as our identity to better treat and manage both NCDs and CDs.

We also discuss:

✔️Dr. Moffat’s experience creating guidelines to implement exercise based curricula

✔️Acknowledging constraints that academicians face to implanting better Exercise coursework in curricula

✔️Why this is a huge opportunity for the PT profession to make a meaningful impact on the current healthcare landscape

✔️ Lessons learned from decades of fierce advocacy across her many leadership positions.

Trust us, you will NOT want to miss this one.
