The Collective DPT Students and Dr. Corvus Give Back at PADS Community Screening Event
On September 23, 2023 Dr. Corvus and two members of the DPT The Collective, Emily Jones ('24) and Lexi Phan ('25), spent 6.5 hours helping with community member screenings for PAD (Peripheral Artery Disease). They worked along with members of OHSU, Providence, Fleet Feet, and the Multnomah County North Portland Health Center having the opportunity to learn from vascular therapists, podiatrists, and running shoe specialists. They saw between 16 and 20 people, had discussions with them about the importance of physical activity and talked over any concerns they had about their own mobility in their day-to-day life, received information from the vascular team and passed that information onto the individual fitting them with new shoes. Dr. Corvus noted that Emily and Lexi provided thoughtful and compassionate attention to each member of the community who came through.
