    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

DPT Final Presentation

I gave my final presentation today on my case study that I have been working on for 8 months titled, “Upper Extremity Prosthetic Fitting and Training Utilizing the Touch Bionics i-digitsTM for a Quadruple Amputee: A Case Report”. The presentation went really well. I am very passionate about this research project and felt that I was able to adequately express that to my audience of approximately 50. It is nice to see so much hard work pay-off and I must give thanks to my advisors, clinical instructors, and the patient for all of the assistance, dedication, patience, and support along the way.

During the day I also listened to a few of my other classmates present on their topics including:

“Outcomes in the VA population”, “Aquatic therapy for the Neurologic population”,  “PT for respiration and head/trunk control in a child who experience anoxia”, “Putting research into words-The process of writing and submitting a manuscript”, “PT in the Burn ICU “, “Oncologic Physical Therapy”, “Merida Group Presentation”.

Some fantastic presentations today that even the president of the College of St. Scholastica, Dr. Colette Geary, decided to attend due to her interest in the “Merida Group Presentation”, the department of physical therapy’s service learning trip!
