PTA student selected to attend national conference

April 22, 2013

Huntington, W.Va. - The West Virginia Physical Therapy Association recently selected Hollianne Swarts, a Physical Therapist Assistant student at Mountwest Community & Technical College, to receive the organization’s scholarship to attend a national conference.  

Swarts, who is expected to graduate from Mountwest in July 2013, was selected by the state association to attend the American Physical Therapy Association’s National Meeting from June 26-29, 2013, in Salt Lake City, Utah. As part of the selection process, Swarts developed an essay about how attending the conference would benefit her educational development and why she feels it is important for students to be involved at the state and national levels of their respective professions. 

Swarts will complete an article for the July 2013 edition of the West Virginia Physical Therapy Association Newsletter reflecting on her experiences at the national meeting.
