Meet Morgan Horne, SPT

21192866_10154741977992623_8104861338506029982_nI plan to practice in women's health PT in the future and plan to use the Pelvic Health Physical Therapy Level 1 course and the Fundamental Topics of Pregnancy & Postpartum course in order to broaden my evaluation of my patient's pelvic floor muscles and therefore get them back to their desired functional activities. I really have learned to love the area of women's health in school and think this niche is a growing part of physical therapy that is so essential for women to thrive at their maximal potential in all areas of life. Because of this passion that I get when thinking about this niche, I have decided to gear my future plans in the direction of women's health.

I joined the Section on Women's Health last year during my first semester in Physical Therapy (PT) school. Once I started school and was exposed to this section of PT and started working for my professor who is a Board-Certified Women’s Health Clinical Specialist, I immediately wanted to get involved and learn more. I was a member for a year and was involved in the readings and the journal opportunities on my own time. After my interest continued to grow in this section, I recently decided to take the next step and apply for a volunteer position on the Student Special Interest Group (SSIG) position within Section on Women's Health. I was elected to the SSIG secretary position within the last few months, and since then I was involved in the the SSIG board meetings, along with educational sessions at CSM.

Bringing Independence and Joy Back Into Our Patients’ Lives

Every year, a group of graduating physical therapy students from Creighton University travel to the Dominican Republic (DR) to provide physical therapy services through the Institute for Latin American Concern (ILAC) in a variety of clinical settings, like hospitals, outpatient facilities, an orphanage, in campo (a rural village), and in individuals’ homes. The students provide treatment to their patients with mentorship from their clinical instructors and provide pro bono physical therapy clinics at the ILAC center multiple times per week. They also provide donated durable medical equipment to children and other patients who might not have known they would benefit from it or who may not have had access to it otherwise.  This year, Creighton University sent two board certified women’s health clinical specialist physical therapists (PT) to the DR, Julie Peterson in February with a group of OBGYNs, and Jenna Iberle in April with the physical therapy students as a clinical instructor, in order to provide general and women’s health focused physical therapy to the people of the community.
