After his undergraduate degree he was commissioned as a Lieutenant into the United States Army. He served eight years in the US Army, deploying once to Iraq and once to Afghanistan. He has earned two Bronze Stars, one with Valor, for his service. After his military service he graduated from Emory University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program in 2013. Dr. Middleton has been practicing Physical Therapy at the Atlanta VA Healthcare System since 2014. The ongoing displays of social injustice, combined with raising two young African-American boys and his passion to help others, have inspired him to take a more active role in advocating for change. Dr. Middleton believes that the humanities are one way to close the racial inequality gap in the physical therapy profession.
