An Update from our Centennial Scholar, Camille Powell

January 27, 2021 By Camille Powell

Hello APTAMA Family,

My name is Camille Powell and I am the APTAMA Centennial Scholar, 

I have started my journey on my capstone project for 2021, which has the overarching goal to address and improve health literacy in the diverse, underserved, and low socioeconomic community of, more immediately, greater Boston, and eventually that of Massachusetts.
 
To achieve this goal I strongly believe that getting in contact with members of this community, and asking important questions about their concerning health conditions, their perception, and understanding of health and medicine will allow me to develop a community centered program. Ultimately, I want to get to know my audience.
 
Currently, I am reaching out to organizations that have made it their mission to support this population, with a strong focus on shelters. In the setting of COVD-19, it has become increasingly difficult to be able to meet anyone or to even get a response from some of these facilities.
 
I am reaching out to the members of APTA, knowing that you may have strong relations or contacts at facilities, where most of their clientele include the population of interest. I would love to extend my network to you and hopefully to your contacts, to allow digital or socially distanced conversations to help me gather the information that I am looking for
 
If you have any suggestions of facilities, in the Greater Boston area that I should be reaching out to, please share your recommendation or if you have a contact that would be interested in talking to me, I would love to have their information. 
 
Please contact me at  richards.camille15@gmail.com
 
Thank You for taking the time to read this and I look forward to hearing from you. 
 
I also sat down with APTAMA Vice President, MK Murray, to talk a little bit more about me and my project. Feel free to watch below!

#APTAMAmovestogether While Apart on PT Day of Service in Support of Our Communities

October 4, 2020 By Brittany Loweree

One of my favorite parts of my job is having the opportunity to learn about individuals and understand the bigger picture of whatever they might be facing in that moment. As a PT, appreciating the multifactorial nature of a patient’s presentation is essential to providing the best care possible. This is something I try to always keep at the forefront of my mind with each individual interaction. While in the Emergency Department for a PT consult during a recent day at work, I was given the opportunity to work with a patient who highlighted the importance of this concept. Yes, they presented with acute impairments which impacted their function, and they benefited from skilled PT services to resume mobility safely. During our time together they also expressed dire need for a clean pair of socks, a warm meal, and a safe place to facilitate continued healing.
