Duke DPT podcast

Aug 12, 2019

A new academic year is upon us, and we are happy to welcome two Duke scholar-athlete alumni, Christine Streisel and Anthony Nash. Both are current students in Duke’s physical therapy program and recipients of the Wallace Wade scholarship. Christine was a 4 year varsity javelin thrower for the track and field team, while Anthony was a 4 year varsity football player and also a sprinter on the track and field team for one season. The Wallace Wade scholarship is awarded to Duke seniors or graduates that have earned varsity letters in either football, basketball, baseball, or track and field, and who have been accepted into a Duke graduate or professional program.


In this episode you will learn: a bit about both of their backgrounds, their experiences at both Duke’s undergraduate and DPT program, what made them pursue PT, their transition to PT school, how being an athlete has helped them in PT school, positive experiences with Sport Medicine staff, and the areas of PT that they wish to pursue.
