Message from Recipient:
"I am grateful for the Arctic Physical Therapy Scholarship award. The scholarship will allow me to focus on finishing an undergraduate thesis project this semester. For the thesis, I have directed the formation of a faculty/student team that has developed a decision tree for the course, along with 300+ real-world scenarios. Our work has caught the attention of the course manager and will be featured in a future course pilot. This pilot will measure the impact of decision-based education on student performance and attitudes. Successful deployment of the pilot course has the potential impact to benefit more than one thousand students each semester."
