Jimmy talked with Jamie Dyson and Steven Ambler at the PT Pubnight @ NEXT 2017 in Boston.  They talked about the importance of working outside of the PT silo with other disciplines, even before we graduate from PT school, primary care PT and its growing importance and pt diagnosis and why it’s so important.

The interview was CRASHED by Andwele Jolly who’s a former classmate of Steven’s.  He’s got a very unique background on top of his degree in Physical Therapy with an MBA and an MHA (expect a full interview with Andwele coming in the near future).
