Since graduate school in Atlanta, GA (Emory University), Kim has pursued her interest in shoulders leading to a gratifying 26-year (and counting) career in upper extremity rehabilitation. Life adventures with college sweetheart Peter and daughter Gabrielle have led to clinical practice in New Jersey, Indiana and currently Oregon. Hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding yield opportunities for reflection and enjoying the spiritual beauty of nature in the Pacific Northwest. Kim currently serves as the ASHT 2022 Annual Meeting Chair and Board Member-at-Large.
The ASHT Annual Meeting is right around the corner, taking place October 13-16 in Washington, DC. Today, we are joined by Kim Kraft, PT, DPT, CHT, the 2022 Annual Meeting Committee Chair. If you have not had the opportunity to attend the meeting in person, this will be the year to come. Kim gives us the inside scoop on what to expect at this year’s meeting: the Pre-Conference Institutes; how the plenary sessions and concurrent sessions work and opportunities to network with other therapists. If you cannot join us -- no worries! The virtual meeting option is back this year. Kim and her team have put a lot of hard work into this year’s meeting and you do not want to miss it!
