Students and Faculty Honoured at 2016 Research Day and Awards Ceremony
It was a day full of talent, “thank-you’s” and tweets!
On July 20, 2016, Student Research Day celebrated the achievements of students and advisers as they showcased their research projects in poster presentations in the Stone Lobby of the Medical Sciences Building. Following the presentations, attendees enjoyed a lunch, then headed to the MacLeod Auditorium for the Recognition and Exceptional Awards Ceremony, which honoured members of our faculty and physiotherapy community for their achievements and commitment to the department. Students and faculty livestreamed event highlights on Twitter using #PTresearchUofT.
“Today was a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the accomplishments of our faculty and students. We are proud to showcase the important student research going on at University of Toronto, and express gratitude to the people that make our department a hub of excellence in physiotherapy teaching and innovation” – Sharon Switzer-McIntyre, Assistant Professor, Vice-Chair of Education
