Midlands District update
SCAPTA
Bob Carpenter writes, "We had 16 PTs and PTAs, and one student attend our Feb. 2 Midlands District meeting. Jill Eversmann, a local speech-language pathologist, graciously volunteered to give us some basics on signing and communicating with the hearing impaired. Everyone had a great time and all got some signing basics and sound resources. We have reached out to a couple of possible speakers but to date have not heard back. If anyone has any ideas for topics or speakers, Cathy and I would very much like to hear from you. Also, if anyone wants to take a turn at hosting an educational seminar, we would appreciate exploring such an opportunity as well."

Popular Mechanics
Drug companies are fleeing the field of stroke research. Over the past decade, hundreds of potential stroke medications have raised hopes and gobbled up funds, only to fail spectacularly in clinical trials. Stroke is on the rise, but scientists struggle to lure pharmaceutical giants back into the risky market for cerebrovascular drugs. The solution, strangely enough, might be a robot.

PT in Motion
Despite the prevalence of blast-related injuries among returning war veterans there are still big gaps in research into long-term effects, according to a newly released study by the National Academy of Science's Institutes of Medicine. These gaps exist not only in research into specific injury types but also in understanding the ways in which blast injuries can involve multiple systems and create "cross system interactions" such as mild traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder.
