Bloom received the award last month in Washington, D.C., recognizing her for her patient-advocacy efforts seeking improved Medicare payments.
Bloom serves on the Executive Committee of the Kansas Physical Therapy Association. She also recently was reappointed by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to another four-year term on the Physical Therapy Advisory Council of the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts.
