Winner of the 2021 Indiana State University “Erik Dalton Scholarship Award.”
Taylor is a senior at Indiana State University majoring in Applied Medicine with a minor in Massage Therapy. This scholarship allows her to continue her education at Indiana State University, as well as find more opportunities to reach her dreams of becoming a doctor of physical therapy.
Erik Dalton has partnered with Indiana State University to create the only minor degree in massage therapy program offered by a major United States university. To provide assistance to students and encourage other universities to follow suit, Erik Dalton has established this scholarship fund.
The intent of the Erik Dalton Myoskeletal Massage Therapy Endowment is to provide scholarships to students passionate about Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques and pursuing a minor in Massage Therapy in the College of Health and Human Services.
ISU Myoskeletal instructor Charlie Peebles and department chair Dr. John Pommier presented Erik Dalton with the award at the Hulman Memorial Student Union.
The successful collaboration between Indiana State University and the Freedom From Pain Institute began in 2012 and was aptly named the “Advanced Myoskeletal Massage Therapy” program. This partnership has resulted in the only minor degree in massage therapy platform offered by a major United States university.
Whitney Lowe summed it up best when he said: “This is a significant move forward for massage therapy education and a possible model for different forms of advanced education in partnership with other schools and programs.”
To elevate the status and continued growth of the Indiana State University program, the Freedom From Pain Institute finances an ongoing continuing education scholarship grant to help fund additional qualified and passionate students.
