Madison Beasley, SPT is a second-year Doctor of Physical Therapy Student at Emory University. She graduated from The University of Texas at Austin, where she pursued a degree in Kinesiology and Health and a certification in Medical Fitness and Rehabilitation. Exploring the humanities through literature and art helps her to find meaning in the seemingly mundane and feel connected with others, especially the patients with whom she works. She hopes to continually challenge her understanding of the world and those living in it to create a dialogue with patients and a relationship of togetherness in the healing process and improve their quality of life.
The Journal for the Humanities in Rehabilitation is a peer reviewed, multi-media journal using a collaborative model with rehabilitation professionals, patients and their families to gain a greater understanding of the human experience of disability through art, literature and narrative.
