UM Physical Therapy Students to Host Massage Clinic Fundraiser

October 23, 2015

MISSOULA  The University of Montana Physical Therapy Student Association will offer massages as part of its biannual campus fundraising clinics.

The clinics will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 26-29 and Nov. 2-5, 9,10,12 and 16-19 in Skaggs Building Room 129. The massages are open to the public and cost $12 for a 20-minute massage and $20 for a 40-minute massage. Only cash or checks will be accepted as payment.

Proceeds directly support scholarships for UMPT students and will help them travel to local and national conferences. UMPT students have attended the National Student Conclave to hear guest lecturers discuss new findings in the field of physical therapy and the Combined Sections Meeting to network for jobs and residencies and learn about different forms of treatment. Fundraising money also goes toward PT students to study abroad in places such as South Africa, Thailand and Ethiopia.

Appointments are required and can be made by calling the UMPT front office at 406-243-4753.
