ALEXANDRIA, VA, April 7, 2010 — The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) has endorsed MEDebt Solutions, a comprehensive personal and education finance resource from Education Association Services (EAS) Group LLC.

MEDebt Solutions provides APTA members personalized education and finance information, tools, strategies, counsel, options, and solutions to successful decision-making in managing student loans and consumer debt.

"Understanding debt, making it affordable, and protecting assets, is a prime requisite for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants, perhaps second only to obtaining a degree," remarked APTA President R. Scott Ward, PT, PhD. "Many physical therapy students are currently looking at principal loan balances that exceed three to four times their gross income for their first postgraduate job. It was incumbent upon us to help our members fund their educational dreams."

APTA and EAS have collaborated since 2002 to help thousands of physical therapy students obtain and consolidate student loans, as well as receive financial education and money/debt management information, tools, and resources.

The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) represents more than 74,000 physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students of physical therapy nationwide.
