About Our SIG

The Duke DPT Diversity Outreach Special Interest Group will foster a welcoming, nonjudgmental atmosphere in which SPTs are able to have vital conversations amongst each other and invited guests. We will discuss diversity including, but not limited to: race, sexual orientation, age, religion, physical abilities, and gender with the hope to garner a better understanding of each other, our patients, and others with whom we will interact on a daily basis. We also plan to host outreach opportunities so that people that are underrepresented in Physical Therapy will gain general awareness of the field and what steps they need to take to become a member of this awesome, ever-growing profession.
