SLP Ali attended April 2018 NANT Conference in Charlotte, NC
“This is my third year attending The National Association of Neonatal Therapists Conference (NANT). I had an incredible opportunity to spend two days continuing to learn from experts within this niche in the field and expand my knowledge of evidence based practices and resources. Some of the presentations I attended focused on areas that included, bridging the gap in therapy post discharge and feeding fragile infants.” – Ali Rice, SLP

SUPERHERO SCRAMBLE AT GSU A ‘SUPER’ SUCCESS
For the second year in a row, Southland Pediatric Therapy Services sponsored the Doctor of Physical Therapy Club’s Superhero Scramble fun run. Donning superhero apparel and bundling up for a chilly
Savannah morning, Owner Dee Dee, Outreach Coordinator Laura (with daughter Abigail), and PT Katie were all smiles on March 31, 2018 as the event began. Physical Therapist Katie ran the 10k race while Dee Dee and Laura manned the table and handed out Southland cups, brochures and goodies. “We love supporting the students at GSU,” Laura stated, “the PT and SLP students are the future of the therapy field and I think it’s awesome for them to see our organization out at these events and showing up.” A few days later Southland attended the GSU career fair which was a great success!
