Editor’s note: Cliff Crowley’s ‘On Watch’ article about Chris O’Brien in our August issue is one of the most inspiring stories we’ve ever published. 

It is indeed very inspiring to see patients progress and hit their functional goals. As a group of Filipino American physical therapists who have made the USA our home and practice site, we continually meet challenging cases like Chris O’Brien’s. It is a struggle to meet their demands for skilled PT while at the same time addressing the multitude of medical comorbidities of each patient. We were inspired to form a group and bond together to share best practices in our profession.

Continue being an inspiration to the world, Chris! We are rooting for your win in your next regatta adventures!
