NASHVILLE, TN, February 7, 2008 – The images that we see of the utter devastation caused by tornados that twisted across the South are difficult to watch. As our profession meets this week in Nashville, we offer sincere condolences to those in our host state and to our other Southern neighbors.
The physical therapy profession is all about helping people rebuild their lives. We hope that through donating to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund and working to assist those who have lost loved ones, homes, businesses, or educational opportunities, we can help strengthen our friends in Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee for the rebuilding that lies ahead.
APTA President R. Scott Ward, PT, PhD
At CSM in Nashville, it has been announced that APTA will make a $10,000 donation to the ARC Disaster Relief Fund. APTA Sections have been invited to donate as well.
