On May 29, 2019, Duane Fast, a longtime champion of the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research passed away. Fast’s dedication to the Foundation began in the early 1990’s and he remained a dedicated proponent long after the 11 years that he served on the Board of Trustees. His presence is still felt among Foundation activities and at APTA conferences where he was well-known for his kindess and warmth.
