Description of Event: As a class, we will be attending Advocacy Day and Friday of the OPTA Annual Conference. Advocacy day is a day for our physical therapy program to show our support for our profession to our government. The annual conference is a 2 day event that follows. During the conference, we will attend seminars to learn about new research and the future of our profession along with events to expand our YSU physical therapy network.

How will this event benefit YSU and the student body: As future physical therapists, it is important for us to advocate for our profession but also our university to keep the physical therapy program involved. Representing YSU at this conference will allow us students to professionally grow through networking and education. Holding our program to a high standard in our profession will allow the program to grow and students looking into universities to choose YSU.

Fundraising: Fundraising is done year round to be able to fund trips to educational conferences and in the future, our board preparation classes. Our first fundraiser was selling Handel’s Ice Cream Pint Cards. Each PT student was asked to sell to their family, friends and faculty. Our class also worked as security for Heinz Field at a Pittsburgh Steeler’s game. 25 of us participated and were paid hourly to work the gates, monitor the crowds from the stands and even on the field.
From each of our fundraisers, we donate 10% of our profits to a non- for profit organization.
In the future, we will hold more events such as a restaurant night or bowling night where we receive part of the profit along with selling possibly candy bars or coupon books.

Community Service: -Every Thursday we have 8 DPT Students, as well as 2 PT Faculty Members provide free physical therapy services through our Penguin PT Program. This program has yielded great results in both patient physical rehabilitation and reaching out to our community. All students and faculty participate.
-Purple Cat Golf Outing: Each year the DPT II students (Class of 2019), volunteer to participate in the Purple Cat Golf Outing. The Purple Cat is a local community program that houses and assists with the daily needs of adults with disabilities. These adults have disabilities of a very wide variety. Therefore, in order for them to golf on a regulation golf course they need assistance, guidance, etc. Our physical therapy department makes it possible for this event to happen each
year. It is phenomenal to see how much joy this event brings to every participant! 30 students and 5 professors will participate .
-Volunteering at Canfield Fair each year. YSU PT Students and Faculty will be at the Canfield Fair everyday, except Saturday, to provide free basic tests and examinations to those interested. We want to educate members of our community on the importance of health and well-being.
12 students and 3 professors participate.
– Volunteering at the Heart Walk. The Heart Walk at the Watts Center is a fundraiser to raise money and awareness for heart diseases and stroke. Our students and faculty are raising money (goal is $10 each) and participate in the event. We will have a tent set up to talk with people about physical therapy and living a healthier lifestyle to prevent things such as heart disease, stroke, etc. All DPT students and faculty participate.
-An upcoming volunteer event is collaborating with Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation to help clean up and board up vacant houses in the Youngstown area. YNDC has done a lot of work to make Youngstown a better area and our students will assist in these efforts during MLK Day of Service. All DPT students are asked to help out and participate.
-Other volunteering events are in the process of being planned and will take place throughout the year.
