In this pre-recorded presentation, Dr. Chevan will describe how faculty engaged Doctor of Physical Therapy students in the delivery of one arthritis appropriate evidence-based intervention, the Walk With Ease program. The student-coached Walk With Ease delivery model can be adapted for delivery of other AAEBIs. The coaching manual and curriculum developed at Springfield College for the Walk With Ease program will be made available to attendees. We hope that Dr. Chevan will be able to join for a live Q & A session at the end of the presentation.
