DPT 5K Run

For the last two years the DPT students have sponsored a 5K run on campus during the fall semester. Faculty, current students, and alumni have participated in the event and some have actually won their respective age divisions. This October 5th the Department will be partnering with Running Central Race Management to launch the “Hilltop Trot” a 5K through Laura Bradley Park! Visit the website for more information and to register for the race http://www.hilltoptrot.com/.

Speaking of running, Dr. Melissa Peterson finished the 2012 Christie Clinic Marathon in Champaign, IL. Despite a great finish, Melissa says there are no more marathons in her immediate or distant future!
