PTIS brings FREE physical therapy services and health education to underserved populations nationally and internationally, while simultaneously coaching and training student PTs on screening, examination & evaluation, plan of care, treatment techniques, cultural awareness, and more.
I decided to volunteer for PTIS because I wanted to provide PT services to underserved communities and I also have an interest in working with children. My experience with the movement class was amazing! I had such a fun time collaborating with Maria on coming up with a theme for the class and what movements to include. It gave me an opportunity to be creative while incorporating PT! Leading the movement class was rewarding and fun. The other volunteers were super supportive and it was nice seeing representation of minorities in the field. Seeing the kids follow along to the movements and enjoy themselves was the best part of this experience for me.
