Michael Billings, PT, MS, President of Infinity Rehab, recently earned certification as an Exercise Expert for Aging Adults (CEEAA)
The training to earn this certification was comprised of 3 weekend courses with a written exam after each session, and one final lab practical exam. The course is completely evidence-based, drawn on the latest research in physiology and interventions for the aging adult.
According to Mike, “by 2030 there will be an estimated 70 million persons in the US 65+ year of age, many with some sort of chronic disease. 23% of deaths from the leading chronic diseases are from sedentary lifestyles. PTs (and OTs) are the ideal professionals to work with adults, many of whom have a fear of starting an exercise program, in order to increase their physical activity levels and to help them stay independent.”
“I hope to have an opportunity to spread this message to all Infinity Associates and those in the industry in a position to influence the activity levels of aging adults.”
Congratulations Mike on your leadership in this important field!
