11.28.2012

High Point University Professor Alexis WrightHIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 28, 2012 – Dr. Alexis Wright, assistant professor of physical therapy at High Point University, was invited to speak at the FDA Minimum Clinically Important Difference (MCID) Conference in Silver Spring, Md.

This year’s conference was titled “Defining Outcome Metrics for Orthopaedic Devices.” Due to Wright’s expertise in hip disorders and treatments, she was asked to lead a breakout session on “Hip Specific Outcome Scores and Best Practices.”

Wright was among speakers from Vanderbilt, Johns Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic, Emory University and many more prestigious universities and institutions. Wright typically speaks at physical therapy conferences, making this FDA conference more significant as it provided a much broader audience and reach for her research.

“I was honored to be selected as a guest speaker for the FDA conference. But more importantly, I’m excited to represent High Point University and the department of physical therapy. We are on our way to developing a nationally renowned program and this is just one small example of the far-reaching effects of HPU.”
