CentraState physical therapist, Shannon Lenahan, PT, DPT, recently was honored with the 2017 Rising Star Young Professional Award by The American Physical Therapy Association of New Jersey (APTANJ). Every year, the APTANJ recognizes its members who have made valuable contributions to the profession of physical therapy, their community, and the Association.
