Thursday, August 14, 2014 Ready for World Physical Therapy Day? Get ready to celebrate physical therapy as a worldwide profession, and spread the message that physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) help people take part in society. World Physical Therapy Day will take place on September 8, and APTA members still have time to join in the celebration. This year the theme is "Fit to Take Part," emphasizing the PT's role in helping people with long-term illnesses or disabilities fulfill their potential by maximizing movement and functional ability. To help PTs get the word out, the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) is offering a toolkit that includes designs for banners, stickers, and t-shirts, as well as press releases and informational booklets. New this year: several posters available in Spanish. APTA is a member of WCPT.
