To celebrate World Physical Therapy Day 2016, the PT students from ESTeSC Coimbra Health School went downtown to raise awareness about the profession and the role of the physical therapist in adding life to years by keeping people well, mobile and independent. 

PhysioMondego, a PT Clinic in downtown, was a “Checkpoint FallSensing”, where community dwelling adults over 50 were invited to participate in a screening for risk for falling and to talk to a physical therapist. Local news covered the event.
