Join us at the Monarch School to Chat with High School Students about the Physical Therapy Profession. The students in attendance are those that have a significant interest in kinesiology and human performance. The Monarch School has served as a place of hope and belonging to thousands of unhoused students since 1987. Their unique and innovative Kindergarten through 12th grade school provides students with the stability and security they need to heal and learn.

  • Join us Thursday, February 23rd at 9AM for Breakfast and an informal meet and greet with students.

We are partnering with Catholic Charities, Diocese of San Diego to perform Health and Fall Screens with senior individuals at two of their housing locations. These events are being held off-site (about 15-20 minutes from the convention center) in order to meet people where they are.

  • The events will take place on both Thursday (2/23) and Friday (2/24) at two separate housing locations.
    • Events are scheduled to occur from 11AM to 1PM.
    • The health screens will include basic review of medical history, taking vitals, discussing health behaviors, and completing a falls risk assessment (STEADI).
  • We are seeking volunteers to perform these screens on residents, who will voluntarily sign up to participate. You would spend about 15 to 20 minutes with each resident. And don't worry we can create teams of clinicians and students if you are not comfortable performing the screens alone. The San Diego district of the California Physical Therapy Association is a collaborator and provides liability insurance for volunteers.
  • Information on next steps, such as available local resources, will be provided to you in order to facilitate further conversation and direct people to where they may need to go.
  • For your knowledge, St. John's Plaza has a high number of residents who speak Spanish and Guadalupe Plaza has a high number of residents that speak Chinese and Vietnamese. We are working on translation services as needed.
