Several STEP UP Scholars, VLT members, and DPT students showed their support this past March at the annual MS Walk in Raleigh. Special thanks to first-year STEP UP Scholar Brynne Gould for her coordinating and planning efforts with UNC’s Department of Neurology.
Congratulations and happy graduation to our second-year scholars, Emily Hayworth and Stephanie (Casnave) Brown. Thank you to Jessica Anderson and Bryn Kennedy for planning the celebration get-together.
Together, they launched the MS STEP UP program more than ten years ago, with the first cohort of MS-trained students graduating in 2010. Recently, they have both endowed the Angela and Marty Rosenberg MS STEP UP Endowment for Multiple Sclerosis and Neurodegenerative Diseases in Physical Therapy, a long-lasting step toward improving health care and patient outcomes for people living with MS.
