Emily Gaylord, DPT

My experience as a pediatric physical therapist has demonstrated the importance of early referrals for children with developmental delays. As an advocate for early intervention, I hope that the AZLEND program will provide me with additional tools to learn and grow professionally in the field of maternal and child health- specifically in border communities and under-served areas in our state. I plan to use the skills I gain through the LEND program to develop an effective leadership role in order to support and advocate for the children, families, and communities I work with.
