Course Presenter:

Lee Everett, MPT has been in private practice for over 10 years, worked in several settings including inpatient and outpatient rehab, fitness facilities and home health, and has a passion for teaching and mentoring therapists to improve the profession of physical therapy. Lee considers herself “a patient family member first and a health care professional second” ever since she cared for her brother who was a quadriplegic before she became a physical therapist.

Lee was very excited when she learned that Ethics courses were required for physical therapists because she hopes this will open an important discussion about the practice of physical therapy and why its reputation may be dulling in the eyes of the population.

Please join us for the dynamic and interactive course on Ethics for Physical Therapists. This course will fulfill your annual requirement, as Lee is a state sponsor of continuing education for the IDFPR.
