Log ‘N Blog
The Log ‘N Blog is a new effort that enables students, faculty, patients and members of the general public to participate in collectively raising funds for physical therapy research. Participants are able to log their swimming, biking and running/walking miles over the year and blog about their experiences on the Log ‘N Blog website. This new initiative helps promote healthy lifestyles and raises awareness about the importance of physical therapy research.
