On this week’s episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, I join forces with the PT Pintcast and host Jimmy McKay PT, DPT to get a behind the scenes look at the Graham Sessions. This is the 10th anniversary of the Graham Sessions, which was founded by Steve Anderson, PT, DPT, Drew Bossen, PT, MBA and Patrick Graham PT, MBA. The Graham Sessions is a one and a half day meeting that allows physical therapists from across the country to come together and talk about the big issues facing our profession.
In this episode we talk about:
– Why the Graham Sessions were created
– Their most memorable discussions from past sessions
– How Steve’s recent retirement affected his outlook on the profession and the session
– How Patrick’s recent health crisis changed his outlook on life and career
– How to create and maintain a successful collaboration
– And much more!
After asking Patrick how his illness changed his outlook on life and career part of his answer included: “I don’t think I worry about things as bad as I used to.”
On how to create and maintain a successful collaboration Steve said: “You need people you can be 100% transparent with.”
Patrick talks about the leadership of the profession and how important it is for the success of the Graham Sessions: “Continued support of our leadership to embrace something that is not of the norm says a lot about the 2 boards and the leadership and their vision for the profession.”
A huge thank you to the Patrick, Drew and Steve for allowing Jimmy and I to be part of the 10 year celebration of the Graham Sessions. It was an honor!
