The St. Augustine campus hosted Don't Be Trippin' in celebration of national Falls Prevention Awareness Day. The event was multi-disciplinary and included students, faculty and community representation offering education, health screenings, and activities to dozens of older adults from the St. Augustine community.
Congratulations to DPT faculty member Dr. Todd Bourgeois, who competed in the "American Ninja Warrior" finals. This summer was the third time Bourgeois competed on Mount Midoriyama course. It may have been the most meaningful due to the physical fatigue he faced. The day before competing Bourgeois and three others paddled from the Bahamas to Florida’s East Coast on a paddleboard as part of a fundraiser for Crossing for a Cure. The event raised more than $275,000 for cystic fibrosis research. This video and news story is from the St. Augustine Record.

“We were athletes and very interested in physical health and well-being, and being in tune with the body so it just made sense,” Kyle said.
It was during their undergraduate experience that they were both drawn to a career in physical therapy. After college the brothers worked as physical therapy aides and recognized that PT was something they wanted to pursue as a career. READ MORE
