MISSOULA – The University of Montana Physical Therapy Student Association members will offer 20- and 40-minute massages throughout March as part of their biannual campus fundraising clinics.
The clinics will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. March 14-17, 21-24 and 28-31 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 attend local and national conferences. UMPT students have traveled to 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. Money raised through the fundraiser 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 Caitlin Malinak, UM School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science administrative associate, at 406-243-4753.
