Community outreach

Third-year physical therapy student Mark Gannon helps Larraine Finley stretch after a walking session at the Santa Maria Apartments in Hazelwood, Mo. University physical therapy students worked with St. Louis seniors to help them prepare for the Mature Mile, a one-mile walk at Forest Park held in conjunction with the St. Louis Marathon. Students held training sessions with the seniors and gave presentations on the benefits of exercise to help promote healthier living in older adults.
