DPT student Chan is a Husky 100!

Jason Chan

Jason Chan, a Doctor of Physical Therapy student, has been named to the Husky 100. The Husky 100 is an annual list that recognizes 100 UW undergraduate and graduate students who are making the most of their time at the UW. 

In addition to his studies, Jason is committed to his community. In his Husky 100 profile, Jason says: 

My time at the UW has been defined by the idea that health and wellness are reflections of an individual’s unique history, culture and perspective of the world. Through my global health coursework, participation in mobile health outreach with the Vietnam Health Clinic and my role in helping to found and lead the UW Doctor of Physical Therapy Program’s first pro-bono clinic, I have learned how powerful community organization can be in adapting healthcare to address the needs of specific patient populations. As a future physical therapist, I will continue to build upon these experiences to work towards increasing the accessibility of physical therapy services to underserved and immigrant communities in the greater Seattle area.

Associate Professor Patti Matsuda, PT, DPT, PhD, is one of Jason's teachers. She says “Jason is someone who sees what is possible, not what barriers may exist, be it health care, accessibility to services or to higher education. Jason has a heart to serve! He is caring and committed to helping others succeed. At his class white coat ceremony, he was one of two student-elected speakers. He will continue to be a tireless advocate for physical therapy and medical care for those who do not have access, who don’t have a voice.”

Congratulations, Jason!
