Jayne Snyder, PT, DPT, MA, FAPTA, passed away on October 6, 2011 after losing her battle with cancer. Dr. Snyder served as the President and Chair of the Foundation for six years from 1997-2003, and was a driving force for the physical therapy profession through her tireless efforts of community leadership and political advocacy.
Jayne was a firm believer in finding viable evidence through research to prove the efficacy of physical therapy interventions, and to advance the field as a scientific profession.
The Jayne L. Snyder Endowment Fund provides a permanent source of funding to examine the efficacy of physical therapist practice through scientific methods of clinical research. Gifts made to the Foundation in memory of Jayne Snyder will be designated toward her endowment fund.
