"Eric LeGrand's New Team" is the
inaugural event of the Interprofessional
Perspectives Speaker Series, presented by the School of Health and Medical Sciences. The School emphasizes the importance of interprofessional
education (IPE), which brings
together students, faculty, clinical partners and alumni from the fields of
athletic training, occupational therapy, physical therapy, physician assistant
and speech-language pathology in order to learn about, learn from, and learn
with each other. This interprofessional approach to health sciences education
leads to effective collaboration among practitioners and, ultimately, improved
health outcomes for our patients and communities.
