Oct. 17, 2019

Krista Wolfe, a 1999 Slippery Rock University graduate with a degree in athletic training, was appointed to the Pennsylvania State Board of Physical Therapy for 2020 by Gov. Tom Wolf.

Wolfe, who also earned a doctoral degree in physical therapy at SRU in 2002, is the dean of the School of Nursing and Health Sciences at Central Penn College. She will join seven other board members who include licensed physical therapists, athletic trainers, two members of the public and the commissioner of professional and occupational affairs.

The State Board of Physical Therapy regulates the practice of physical therapy in Pennsylvania by passing qualified applicants for licensure as physical therapists and registration as physical therapist assistants. Among its other functions, the board issues, renews, suspends and revokes licenses and registrations.
