Faculty at the University of St. Augustine had an impactful presence at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapist Conference in San Diego, CA this October. Not only did our faculty have a strong showing during the poster presentations, several also gave platform presentations. Dr. Paris delivered the Inaugural Honorary Speaker address to kick off the event. What a wonderful turnout from USA!
Dr. Stanley V. Paris was honored as the inaugural “Distinguished Lecturer” of the AAOMPT conference and presented a keynote address to the membership. Dr. Paris’ presentation provided the membership a greatly appreciated history lesson of where our profession has been and how it has arrived to the point it is today. He provided great insight on his thoughts on Evidence Informed Practice and challenged the audience to think beyond the findings of a literary article and to treat the patient as a whole. Dr. Paris’ presentation set the tone for the remainder of the conference as it laid the groundwork for one of the most talked about AAOMPT conferences in many years. – Dr. Eric Furto
