APTA is Our Professional Association. The Only One We’ve Got.
1 minute read
I fell in love with the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) in my first year of physical therapy school.
On one particular year, I had the chance to attend APTA's NEXT Conference & Exhibition. We were lucky enough to host the conference near our program.
It was at that conference, that I was able to see firsthand the passion and enthusiasm for our profession and association everywhere I looked: the attendees, the programming, the atmosphere. The energy was unmistakable.
Since that 1 conference, I have continued to be involved in my profession and association. My goal is to surround myself with others who love this profession and appreciate the work of our association, just as much as I do.
Over the years, it's become even clearer that unlike other associations, APTA is comprised of members who share a common passion for service to others that not many others have.
APTA is our professional association. The only one we've got. And together in support of our association, we're not only supporting our profession today and into the future, but we're supporting our patients and communities too.
