MS Physical Therapy Scholarship Recipients Graduate From UNC

In August, the first recipients of the Physical Therapy MS Scholarship are set to graduate from UNC-Chapel Hill. Physical Therapy is a specialized area of health care that is especially important to the health and overall wellness of those diagnosed with MS. People living with MS who see a physical therapist regularly experience benefits such as, improvement in balance and mobility, a decrease in weakness and fatigue, and can ultimately improve their long term mobility.

The Eastern North Carolina Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the UNC-Chapel Hill Division of Physical Therapy established the Physical Therapy MS Curriculum and Scholarship Fund at the Medical Foundation of NC. Physical therapists are in high demand in our state and across the nation. Our state is privileged to have programs like UNC's that produce such invaluable health care specialists.

Erica Byrne, seen in the youtube video, along with Kasey Gore and Kelly Thomas are the 2009-2010 recipients of the scholarship.
