“I really appreciate that Carlow University has a very robust campus community which is focused on interdisciplinary teamwork, both in the classroom as well as the local, national, and world community as a whole, to ensure that each and everyone’s individual needs are met. I aim to help doctor of physical therapy students evolve in their foundational knowledge (habits of the head), clinical skills (habits of the hand), and providing care with compassion and empathy (habits of the heart) to empower them to help in the ongoing creation of a more just and merciful world.” – Katie Shroyer
