PT professor Martha Acosta retires
By Kate Hunger
At age 10, Associate Professor Martha M. Acosta, PhD, PT, GCS, was sure she would one day be a neurosurgeon.
“I was always interested in health care and helping people get well,” she said. “I was fascinated with the human body — how it works and how it repairs itself.”
The death of her father while Acosta was a premed student caused her to reevaluate her plans.
“I looked at my life picture and wondered if I wanted to spend as much time in school,” she said.
