February 29, 2024 • SHP News

Bev 1Dr.  Beverly McNeal’s path to becoming a faculty member in The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth’s Department of Physical Therapy began when she arrived on campus for training in 2022.

HSC hosted the American Physical Therapy Association Academy of Geriatrics’ Certified Exercise Expert for Aging Adults certification course. There, McNeal met HSC professor Dr. Myles Quiben who was a course instructor and past chair of the DPT program.

“When I started seeing the CEEAA course being offered and looked into it, I realized this is a pretty big deal,” McNeal said. “If you’re in academics, you need to have certain credentials, and I felt I needed it to be able to confirm that I’m teaching current evidence, and I am doing a good job teaching.”
