Congratulations to Jim Roush, PT, PhD, ATC, AT, professor, Department of Physical Therapy, on receiving the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) Lucy Blair Service Award for 2016. The Lucy Blair Service Award was established in 1969 to honor the contributions of Lucy Blair, who served the APTA from 1950-1969. During the poliomyelitis epidemic in the early 1950s, Ms. Blair personally directed the role of the APTA and physical therapy in evaluating the efficacy of gamma globulin and the poliomyelitis vaccine. Nominees for the Lucy Blair Service Award must be physical therapists who are physical therapists or physical therapist life members of APTA. Criteria for selection include contributions that are of exceptional value to the association: • May be in the realm of any area(s) of concern to the association as a whole, or to the association’s components. • May be those made through an individual’s service on one or more elected or appointed groups, or in one or more elected or appointed positions, and/or in one or more other capacities at the Association level and component level. • Are judged on the basis of the results of an individual’s service, and not merely the duration or continuity of that service. Dr. Roush will be presented with his award at the APTA Annual Conference and Expo in June.
