Ethan M. LewisEthan M. Lewis
Ray Boone Scholarship

Ethan grew up in the small rural town of Arkport, New York. Attending a small school comprised of less than six hundred students in kindergarten through 12th grade he was able to participate in a number of sports including baseball, basketball, and soccer. As he entered his senior year of high school Ethan decided to enroll in the New Visions Medical Program where he was able to foster his interest in the complexities and inner workings of the human body that had been developing since he began playing sports. It was in this program that Ethan decided he would attend Ithaca College and enter its prestigious physical therapy program, embracing the opportunity to help others by working with and understanding the human body. 

There are many unique experiences that Ethan has had while attending IC. One of his most memorable experiences was participating in a research study in which the purpose was to compare the reliability and validity of two-dimensional motion analysis using an iPad application to traditional three-dimensional motion analysis. This study was exciting, because the results were important for determining the role that modern motion technology would play in the future of health care professions, athletic settings, etc.
