Gleeson elected vice president of education section of APTA



HOUSTON — Dr. Peggy Blake Gleeson, associate professor of physical therapy at Texas Woman's University’s Houston campus, has been elected vice president of the Education Section of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).

“I am honored to have been elected by my peers to this position,” Dr. Blake Gleeson said. “By assuming the position of VP of the Education Section, I am able to expand my level of knowledge as well as extend my level of influence in contributing to the growth of our profession.”

Dr. Blake Gleeson continued, “I have enjoyed many years of serving on committees with various members of the physical therapy education community, both academics and clinicians. This is a very exciting time for our profession as we move to doctorate-level education. My particular interest is in the realm of clinical education and how the changes in our professional education directly impact a student’s internship.”

APTA is a national professional organization representing more than 66,000 members. Its goal is to foster advancements in physical therapy practice, research and education. For more information, visit www.apta.org.

More than 1,200 students majoring in nursing, physical therapy, library science, business administration, healthcare administration, occupational therapy and nutrition are enrolled at TWU’s Institute for Health Sciences - Houston Center in the Texas Medical Center. Construction is nearly complete on the new TWU Houston campus, scheduled to open for fall classes on Aug. 28. The new, state-of-the-art facility will be located at 6700 Fannin St. and will allow TWU to eventually more than double its Houston enrollment.
