    Similarly, older adults whose perceived isolation score is one standard deviation above average face 30 percent lower odds of being above any category of self-rated health (e–.359 = .698). It is worth noting that disconnectedness and perceived isolation account for part of the health-related advantages of college attendance and marriage. Partnered individuals report better health partially because they perceive themselves to be less isolated (t = 4.13, p < .001), and older adults who attended college may fare better with respect to physical health because they are more socially connected (t = 15.06, p < .001) and perceive themselves as less isolated (t = 5.25, p < .001) than those who did not attend college. Additionally, over 20 percent of minorities’ health disadvantage in model 1 may be attributed to their higher levels of disconnectedness (t = 12.70, p < .001) and perceived isolation (t = 5.28, p <…

    The journal makes reference to a lecture given by Charles M. Magistro, Director of Physical Therapy, Pomona Valley Community Hospital, presented at the Sixty-Third Annual Conference of the American Physical Therapy Association, San Antonio, TX, June 28-July 2, 1987. The paper initially deals with the growth of the profession over the years with Magistro emphasizing that "We physical therapists never must permit our profession to be jeopardized by failing to provide those services that justify our existence” (Magistro 1728). He explains that “The most urgent of these challenges is in the matter of education” (Magistro 1728), the issue is really affected by funding concerns proposing to readers to support the foundation’s fund-raising campaign to improve the quality of PT education. He was convinced that “the foundation had unlimited potential because its goals were tied so closely to the survival of our profession, specifically providing funding for research and scholarship activities” (Magistro 1731). The author is emphasizing the need to support the foundation to improve the profession in one way or another, a message that has made the article interesting and persuasive. This article sheds light on several issues in the physical therapy profession. Magistro makes his opinion very clear on the topic of physician referral for profit. “I remain deeply concerned about anything and everything that has the potential to debase our profession, whether it be the improper use of supportive personnel by our own members or the reaping of profits by practitioners outside of our profession from their unethical referral…
