ATSU-ASDOH D2 students Ivette Jorge, Nez Mutlu, Andrew Serrano, and Ryan Smith recently visited Murphy School District in Phoenix to provide dental education and treatment to students through an unique event called Murphy’s Macho Molars.

The ATSU-ASDOH student-driven event aimed at increasing oral health knowledge, like demonstrating proper brushing techniques, to elementary-aged school children.  Jorge, Mutlu, Serrano and Smith also provided an opportunity for these young patients to receive fluoride varnish treatment, a coating that is applied to teeth to prevent cavities.

Murphy’s Macho Molars took place at the Murphy Children’s Clinic, a no-cost, school-based, comprehensive dental home for the children who live in the Murphy School District.

The event is part of ATSU-ASDOH’s Dentistry in the Community, which gives students a chance to build unique community collaborations and provide oral healthcare services to patients in undeserved communities.

2013-05-20_PT-Aquatics-Lab_73 Physical therapy students from the class of 2015 attended an aquatics lab hosted by the Ross Farnsworth East Valley YMCA on May 20. Sixty-two students learned a variety of techniques that are commonly used in physical therapy, and how to to treat a patient that may benefit from being in an aquatic environment compared to land.

Patients that have incurred a stroke or an orthopedic surgery often do better in an aquatic environment as it lends to ease of movement in the water. “The water environment is beneficial for many types of patients throughout the lifespan, so our physical therapy students need to know how to work with patients with neurological and orthopedic conditions as well as cardiovascular compromised patients while in the pool,” said John Heick, PT,DPT, OCS, associate professor, physical therapy.
