Physical Therapy Day of Service


Physical Therapy Day of Service is a globally recognized day where Physical Therapists around the world spend the day giving back to their community. Last year, physical therapy students at Emory & Henry participated in chopping wood for cabin-building at Hungry Mother State Park. Students also spent time writing cards for the Francis Marion Manor residents.
