STEM Café—Physical Therapy for Lifelong Health

 STEM Café: Physical Therapy for Lifelong Health

May 15, 6:30-8:30 p.m. 

Join us from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15, at Fatty's Pub and Grille in DeKalb, Illinois, for the next STEM Café—Physical Therapy for Lifelong Health.

Physical therapists have a unique role to play in helping to promote public health and reverse the trend toward chronic illness. Chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease are becoming more and more common, even among younger people. However, lifestyle changes – especially increased movement – help to prevent and manage these illnesses.

Learn more at the next STEM Café with physical therapist and Clinical Assistant Professor Sarah Greenhagen. Professor Greenhagen and NIU physical therapy students will explore the role of physical therapy in helping to improve overall health and quality of life for people of all ages.

Northern Illinois University STEM Cafés are part of NIU STEAM and are designed to increase public awareness of the critical role that STEM fields play in our everyday lives. They are offered in partnership with the NIU Alumni Association and made possible with support from Bayer Fund.
