The American Health Council Appoints Dr. Laurie-Anne S. Campbell, DPT to the Physical Therapy Board

Dr. Laurie-Anne S. Campbell, DPT has been warmly welcomed onto the Physical Therapy Board by the American Health Council for her dedication to the healthcare industry during 28 years as a physical therapist and rehabilitation manager/director.

Dr. Campbell became involved in physical therapy after a friend sustained a spinal cord injury that resulted in quadriplegia. After she completed training in Physical Therapy, Dr. Campbell dove into the rehabilitation field, completing a Masters Degree in Business Administration as well as a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree, whilst also becoming a Multiple Sclerosis Certified Specialist.

For the last 15 years she has served in roles as the Manager of Outpatient Rehabilitation and as a Rehabilitation Program Coordinator at Dignity Health’s Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, AZ. Dignity Health is the fifth largest health system in the US, made up of more than 60,000 caregivers and staff who serve diverse communities in 21 states. Dignity Health’s goal is to create environments that meet the physical, mental and spiritual needs of patients. At the Barrow Neurological Institute, Dr. Campbell is responsible for oversight and development of the Multiple Sclerosis Rehabilitation Program and the Aquatic Therapy Program, including consultation, evaluation, and therapy treatment with patients. Her expertise is in designing holistic care approaches for pain, weight, and stress management, that integrate medical science with other holistic interventions. Holistic wellness care is an area where Dr. Campbell intends to expand her involvement, particularly as a Clinically Certified Hypnotherapist through her own practice, Vortex Wellness Concepts, LLC.

Beyond her work with Dignity Health, Dr. Campbell is also proud of her role as a Clinical Instructor for doctoral students and as an educator for Multiple Sclerosis. She attributes her success to the mentorship of her own exceptional teachers, particularly that of Craig Allee, PhD, who served as the Chair of the Division of Natural Sciences at her undergraduate institution. In her free time, she enjoys hiking with her Siberian Huskies, meditating and teaching others to meditate, reading, and listening to music. She also maintains an involvement with several charitable organizations, including the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Siberian Husky Rescue, the Desert Botanical Garden and the Smithsonian Institute’s Museum of the American Indian.
