COVID-19 has caused a major upheaval in all of our personal and professional lives.  Beth Crowler’s involvement with ANPT leadership to keep us up to date on optimizing our clinical practice has always, and now more than ever, has a positive impact on each of us.

Beth is a board-certified Clinical Specialist in Neurologic Physical Therapy.  She wears many hats in her professional life:

As a faculty member in the Washington University Program in Physical Therapy, she teaches courses related to evaluation and treatment of individuals with neurologic health conditions as well as business/management/professional issues content. Her teaching responsibilities align with her administrative and clinical roles.

These additional roles include serving as the director of four outpatient clinical practice locations, with 52 providers. The clinical practice serves individuals in the community and is an integral part of the program’s education and research missions.  Her administrative role is to oversee operations and program development to meet the needs of the community and all missions of the program.

Clinically, she sees patients with varied neurologic health conditions.  She supports patients with any diagnosis, but focuses on the treatment of individuals with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders.

Beth is an advocate for participation with the NAPTA.  She notes that since her time on the board, “There has been tremendous growth in the creation of clinical practice guidelines and efforts to increase Knowledge Translation (KT) to more effectively incorporated high levels of evidence into practice. Being aware of KT efforts as well as those that pertain to the role of neuro PT’s in health promotion and wellness will enhance our delivery of care to those with neurologic health conditions.”   Her comments are so time appropriate as to the benefits of involvement with NAPTA.  She describes, “Being on the Board during a time of tremendous growth and change has been an amazing opportunity. The feedback from ANPT members about the direction of the Academy and growth in available resources has been resoundingly positive. With changes in health care delivery and regulations, it will be critical for us to maintain a large cadre of engaged members.”

Thank you for your service Beth!
