– Mason Frank, junior athletic training major at High Point University, presented at the North Carolina Physical Therapy Association annual meeting on Oct. 13 in Greensboro.

In addition to Frank’s presentation, he has also been published as a co-author on the manuscript that the presentation was based on in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. This is a major accomplishment for Frank as an undergraduate student.

Frank presented a poster entitled “Diagnostic Accuracy of Scapular Physical Examination Tests for Shoulder Disorders” and was chosen to present because he co-authored the manuscript. Frank was also given the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues in the physical therapy profession.

The manuscript was part of Frank’s honors project from the spring that he worked on with Dr. Alexis Wright, assistant professor in the department of physical therapy and Frank’s supervising faculty member, and Dr. Eric Hegedus, professor and founding chair of the department of physical therapy. Frank is currently preparing for physical therapy graduate school, and this opportunity, as well as connections he has made in the field, will be beneficial in aiding his acceptance into a program.

“Mason was an ambassador for High Point University and the School of Health Sciences,” says Wright. “Mason was the only undergraduate student to present at the conference which is primarily attended by current Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) faculty across North Carolina, practicing clinicians and current DPT students. It was an honor to have Mason present at this conference as we continue to develop our DPT program here at High Point.”
