    Shauney's Bio:
    I graduated from CSS in 2014 with a B.A. in psychology with a biology minor and completed the M.S. EXP program at CSS in 2015. I am now a 2nd year physical therapy student at CSS and I'm loving it! I chose St. Scholastica based on the welcoming environment. I played softball at CSS during my four years of undergraduate studies. I am now the Captain of the CSS Love Your Melon Crew and a PT club rep. I enjoy the company of my friends, being outside, playing volleyball, relaxing and my cat Mittens!

A Reflection on CSM: The Conference

The Combined Section Meeting Conference lasted 3 days and this is what our days looked like:

  • Wake-up, get ready, coordinate Ubers to get the members of our house to the convention center
  • Classes from 8-10, 12-2, and 3-5 on a variety of different topics (geriatrics, neuro, sports, pediatrics, research, etc.), you could choose which ones you wanted to attend.
  • Visit the Expo center between classes, find a place to eat, explore downtown San Antonio
  • After class, go home and rest, get ready to go out for dinner and exploring

Our days were pretty jam-packed, but we were able to learn a lot and sight-see in San Antonio. During one of our breaks between classes, we visited and toured the Alamo. One of the nights we went out to eat with our professors at a Mexican restaurant (it was delicious!) and another night the Minnesota chapter of the  American Physical Therapy Association (MNAPTA) hosted a dinner and social for Minnesota members. We were able to connect with practicing physical therapists, researchers and other students from Minnesota.

The Expo had TONS of different booths for us to check out. I talked to people at booths who were recruiting physical therapists to work for them, service learning opportunities, and companies offering the latest and greatest PT products. We also got a lot of free things (goniometers, pens, phone accessories, kinesiotape, and so much more).

This experience also helped us bond as a class. There was 13 of us staying in an AirB&B house and it was great! Needless to say, we didn’t get much sleep, but we were able to connect outside of class and learn a lot about each other.

This was such a fun experience and I am so glad I went!
