The Orthopedic Study Group (OSG) of the Hudson Valley District has been active since the fall of 1994. The group discusses a wide range of issues pertinent to Orthopedic physical therapy. Currently, the OSG is open to both District members and non-members.
The orthopedic study group is a group of physical therapists and physical therapist assistants that meet once a month to share ideas, exchange information and practice techniques. The OSG is a participatory group that expects each member to provide one presentation to the rest of the group.
Please call or email Beth Duggan at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm the meeting date. For further information or to join the group, please contact Beth Duggan at the above email address.
PEDIATRIC STUDY GROUP
Chairperson: Linda H. Fuller, PT, PCS
The Pediatric Study Group is organized as a group discussion, where everybody comes with some information to share on the topic, with a moderator leading the discussion. That is why there are no "speakers" listed next to the topic listed. Linda Fuller, via e-mail, organizes the meeting so that there are therapists with differing ideas, etc. at each meeting.
All meetings will be held at 7:30 pm.
LOCATION: Pediatric Physical Therapy Services
