Columbia University Running Symposium Brings Together Alumni, Faculty
June 1, 2019
On June 1, 2019, the Columbia University Programs in Physical Therapy held a continuing education course entitled “The Columbia University Running Symposium-Science Meets Practice: Managing Injuries and Optimizing Performance.” Directed by DPT program faculty member Colleen Brough, PT, DPT, MS, the course covered methods to identify biomechanical patterns and performance variables linked to increased risk of injury in the running athlete. Presenters included many DPT program faculty members and alumni.
Dr. Brough commented, “Not only did the course offer participants a deep dive into inter-professional perspectives on running medicine, including the tactical athlete, postpartum running and biologics, but it served as a Columbia DPT program reunion: alumni traveled from California and Maryland to attend. The course drew expert clinicians as well as recently graduated physical therapists, and delivered engaging panel discussions with many Monday morning take-aways.”
