The Mildred Elson Award for 2011 is presented to Stanley Paris. Stanley Paris has been a driving force in the physical therapy profession across the world. From New Zealand, where he earned his physical therapist entry-level qualification and first awards in the 1950s, to the United States of America where he lives and works today, Stanley has influenced the world of physical therapy through his writing, teaching, clinical practice, and advocacy efforts. His work has furthered the development of the PT profession.
He has played a founding and influential role in various organisations. He was the founding chairman of the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physiotherapists, IFOMPT, and also its second president. He was the founder and President of the Orthopaedic Section of the American Physical Therapy Association and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists. He also founded the Journal of Manual and Manipulative Therapy.
Over his career, Stanley has been equally energetic in the pursuit of excellence as in his own many physical activities and adventures.

Dr. Stanley Paris has announced that he will be making another attempt to set the age and speed record for solo circumnavigation of the globe by sailboat as a way to raise awareness for the Foundation for Physical Therapy and physical therapy research.
Dr. Stanley Paris
Florida-based and New Zealand-born adventurer Stanley Paris, PT, PhD, plans to try again to become the oldest person to solo circumnavigate the globe nonstop by sailboat and by beating the current record of 137 days. Paris attempted to achieve the around-the-world goal last year, but was forced to stop because of equipment failures.
Dr Paris will use this trip, scheduled to launch in early November, to raise awareness for the Foundation for Physical Therapy (FPT) on whose board he serves. During his first attempt, Dr Paris raised more than $250,000 for the Foundation.
"I am looking forward to taking on this challenge once again and using this opportunity to raise awareness for the Foundation," stated Dr Paris. "As a physical therapist and educator, I believe physical therapy research is the key basis of effective treatments for those living with injuries and diseases, and gives patients a better result with fewer complications at a lower cost. But we need more research that demonstrates the value of physical therapy, and the Foundation is doing just that."
Widely known as a pioneer in the field of physical therapy, Dr Paris founded the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences. Since his immigration to the United States from New Zealand in 1966, he has been actively involved in research, clinical practice, and teaching in the areas of orthopedic and manual physical therapy. He has published more than 40 articles in physical therapy, medical, and osteopathic journals and a book, The Spinal Lesion.
"Stanley continues to impress me with both his commitment to achieving his personal goals and his generosity toward the Foundation," said Foundation Board of Trustees President William G. Boissonnault, PT, DPT, DHSc.
In 2014, Dr Paris attempted to break the speed and age record set by Dodge Morgan in 1986. Morgan circumnavigated from Bermuda and returned in 150 days at age 56. However, in the past year, a Chinese sailor sailed around the globe from China and lowered the speed record to 137 days. Additionally, the age record was broken when a 70-year-old British woman circumnavigated from Vancouver, Canada.
Dr Paris will seek to set new speed and age records as well as being the first to circumnavigate green. He will depart from St. Augustine, Florida, in early November.
Physical therapist adventurer forced to end record-breaking sail | World Confederation for Physical Therapy, 1 Jan 2014 [cached]
Stanley Paris at the helm of his state-of-the-art offshore cruising boat, Kiwi Spirit.
Six weeks into his journey physical therapist adventurer Stanley Paris has been forced to abandon his attempt to sail single-handed around the world non-stop.
He has announced that he will be heading to land in Cape Town, South Africa, in the face of rigging problems and equipment failures that made continuing "foolish in the extreme".
Paris was attempting to circumnavigate the world in a record 120 days. At the age of 76, he would have been the oldest person to have sailed around the world single-handed.
However, in his latest blog entry, Paris says he is considering re-starting his attempt from his original starting point, his home in St Augustine, USA, in November this year.
"I suspect I can now consider myself an experienced solo sailor, having logged some 62 solo days at sea by the time I reach Cape Town," he said. "Experience should never be wasted."
Earlier in the voyage, Paris reported good progress despite some unfavorable winds. But when rigging and other equipment began to malfunction, he took expert advice from his boat designer and support group, who said he should end his attempt.
Paris has expressed his sadness that he has disappointed so many. He wrote in his blog: "There is one thing I can say and that is I tried, and that my spirit did not give up until those that I must respect made it clear to me that it was over."
Stanley Paris, President of the University of St Augustine for Health Sciences in the United States, has been a driving force in the physical therapy profession and was awarded WCPT's highest honour, the Mildred Elson Award in 2011.
The attempt was made in part to bring attention to the Foundation for Physical Therapy, where he serves on the Board of Trustees. His sailing efforts have helped to raise over $250,000 for the Foundation.
