April 28, 2021 - HOUSTON - TWU Houston Associate Professor of Physical Therapy Wayne Brewer, PT, PhD (’14), MPH, OCS, CSCS, received a Faculty Diversity Award from the American Council of Academic Physical Therapy (ACAPT).

ACAPT selected the award recipients based on the applicant’s leadership goals, connection with ACAPT’s mission and how the fellowship will help a candidate’s future role at their educational institution and within ACAPT.

“As a member of an under-represented minority group, I believe it is critical for ACAPT to develop mentorship opportunities in the area of research for entry-level and post-professional doctoral students," said Brewer. “The well documented shortage of students from under-represented minority backgrounds in physical therapy has left a vacuum of researchers who are by virtue of their lived experiences, uniquely positioned to conduct research that impacts the care for patients from these same ethnic backgrounds. I would like to be involved in ACAPT to develop a formal research mentoring program.”
