Physical Therapy Month Highlight: Pat Winders of the Sie Center

October 10th, 2012 by Global Down Syndrome Foundation

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month, and it’s also National Physical Therapy Month. So we’re highlighting Pat Winders, the senior physical therapist at the Anna and John J. Sie Center for Down Syndrome at Children’s Hospital Colorado. The Sie Center is the medical care arm of the Linda Crnic Institute for Down Syndrome, and Pat is an important member of the therapeutic team.

Pat came to the Sie Center in order to help create a comprehensive care facility for children with Down syndrome. Beside her daily work of seeing patients, she has instituted programs that are flourishing in our community. Among her initiatives are the Be Beautiful Be Yourself Dance Class with the Colorado Ballet, the Ed McCaffrey Dare to Play Football Camp and Denver Broncos Cheerleaders Dare to Cheer Camp.
