The first physical therapist arrived in Kentucky in 1935. Within the next few years Mary McDonnell was joined by 15 of her colleagues. They came to fight the crippling effects of polio. They touched the lives of World War II veterans whose bodies were mangled and broken. In 1947, feeling the need to unite and expand their knowledge, they founded the Kentucky Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association. These pioneers could only dream their association, which started with 16 members, would grow to serve over 1,000.
In lieu of this month’s meeting we will have our annual Christmas party at Highland Court Apartments; 1720 Richmond Drive at 6:30 on December 19. I hope everyone will come join us for what is sure to be a fun time.
