Megan Sliski 20

A Presidential Purpose

Megan Sliski ‘20 joined the student branch of the New York Physical Therapy Association (NYPTA) two years ago with the modest goal of meeting and networking with physical therapists from across the state. This year, the organization elected Megan its new president.

Sliski, a student in UC’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program, now represents fellow PT students from hundreds of member colleges and universities in New York State.

“It's so exciting to work with students to help better the profession of physical therapy and to advocate for our patients and their futures,” says Sliski, who is currently completing her fieldwork in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of the Children’s Hospital of Michigan—an experience in line with Sliski’s ultimate career goal: to work with newborns in a hospital setting. “Helping sick and premature infants meet milestones is incredibly rewarding,” she says.
