    It is with a heavy heart that I let you know of the passing of a long-time member of the Academy of Aquatic Physcial Therapy, Phyllis Duncan Palma, PT, DPT. Phyllis served on the Nominating Committee for three years, concluding her last year on the committee as Chair in 2016. She was a advocate for aquatic physical therapy and taught swimming to children with special needs.  There will be a scholarship established in her name for any student who is interested in persuing a career in aquatic physical therapy.  When more information is available, we'll be sure to post it here. 

    The memoral service will be Saturday, September 28 at Sandy Springs Chapel, beginning at 2pm. The address of the Sandy Springs Chapel is 136 Mount Vernon Highway NW Atlanta, GA 30328.

    With sympathy,


    Christine Schulte, PT, MBA

    Academy of Aquatic Physical Therpay President
