Point to Point: What’s It Like to be a Physical Therapist?
Grades: 3 - 12

Video Description: Curious about a career in a medical specialty? Join Sandy Brooks, physical therapist as she discusses her career.  After becoming a physical therapist, she became a board-certified specialist in pediatrics. She has worked in the neonatal intensive care unit, schools, home care, and in private practice.  She built her career as a practitioner into an expert witness, international speaker, and author.  She will answer your questions and share information about the day to day aspects of her job as well as the possibilities you can create for yourself as a therapist.

The program’s conversation will be guided entirely by the topics you wish Sandy to address and the questions your students want Sandy to answer.  For example, if your students are elementary or middle school students who send topics and questions focusing on general career exploration then that will be the direction of your interaction; if your students are high school students wanting to focus on more specific aspects of that industry, then that will be the direction of your interaction.  Your topic preferences and advance questions are due to us no less than three days prior to your scheduled interaction.
