We are so excited to share that a class of 2025 MSJ DPT Student has been awarded the Catherine Worthingham Fellows CSM Scholarship provided by the APTA - a scholarship provided by the APTA’s Catherine Worthingham Fellows(FAPTA) to inspire all PT’s to professional excellence. Please join us in congratulating Anna DiLonardo, Class of 2025, in receiving this scholarship to assist with the cost of her attendance to CSM 2024 in Boston! Nearly 500 students from across the country applied and Anna was 1 of 7 to receive this scholarship!

Anna shares that she is grateful to have been chosen for this award as it will allow her to grow not only as a student, but as a future PT as well. She is looking forward to attending “Beyond the Clinic Walls: Promoting Health and Wellness Across Populations at Risk for Falls”, “Getting to Boston: Myth Busting, Training, and Racing Considerations for Marathoners and Other Endurance Events”, and “LAMP Leadership: TED-Style Talks – Shared Lessons on Leading Within and Leading Others”.

The Student Physical Therapy Association (SPTA) is also supporting 5 students to attend CSM with scholarships. The recipients are (in alphabetical order only) Anna DiLonardo, Hadley Faris, Casey Hite, Ileta Pizano, and Alicia Sutton.
We are thrilled for these class of 2025 students to represent MSJ, to gain experience, to network, and to bring back valuable knowledge to other class mates. If you are attending CSM Boston, be on the lookout for our students and say hello!
