Friends and Sponsors
The TWU School of Physical Therapy has a Friends Program for persons who wish to support the mission of the school. The school is grateful to those alumni, former faculty, PT patients, health organizations and business leaders in the community who have generously contributed to the success of the school.
Donations made through the Friends of PT program allow the school to offer activities not funded by the state such as the annual research conferences held in Houston and Dallas which are open to all PTs for continuing education credit, opportunities for students to network with American PT Association leaders, and bringing in guest speakers.
“Friends” are designated for contributions to the program at any level and type of gift including time, expertise and monetary donations. Three additional levels of support include Sponsor, Partner and Sustaining Partner. Those friends are listed on our website.
In addition, opportunities are available for naming of special events held at the school, such as Research Conferences and Lectureships. Friends are provided with information on the accomplishments of students and faculty, facilities updates and curricular changes.
