On Wednesday April 6, 2016, Advantage Physical Therapy Associates CEO, Dr. Lisa Kemp, PT, participated in the 5th annual JA Young Women’s Symposium(York) held at the Hilton Garden Inn in West Manchester. She has served as a steering committee member and program participant for the past 5 years.
Beginning in 2011, Dr. Kemp was asked to serve on the JA Young Women’s Symposium Steering Committee. Her role as a steering committee member was to support the program through guidance, enhancement, and implementation of its content to bring this special day to all of the young women chosen by their respective High Schools to participate.
After the completion of the 2011 JA Young Women’s Symposium event, Dr. Kemp was deeply moved by the enriching nature of the program, it’s participants, and fellow steering committee volunteers. The message that was being conveyed to the young women on that day was powerful and necessary. She knew that this JA Young Women’s Symposium program deserved her continued volunteered support.
The JA Young Women’s Symposium(York), is a full day of learning activities focused on career exploration and self assessment. The objective is to help young women better visualize their goals and aspirations. This event is supported yearly by local women business owners & women business mentors. Porcha Johnson of WGAL, was this years event emcee. The keynote speaker, Harriet Turk, who is a crowd favorite each year, presented her program entitled Believe in yourself; believe in your power; believe in the value of life.
This year Dr. Kemp participated as a career panelist, speaking about the field of Physical Therapy and her career path. She also provided a presentation on the value of Social Media; sharing some Do’s and Don’ts when using Social Media in Job seeking. In addition, she supported behind the scenes to help all of those involved have a great day with JA! Together we can help Young Women from local High Schools….STEP UP to a BRIGHTER FUTURE!
