"With the momentum of last week's rally, now is the perfect time for APTA members who could not attend PT Day on Capitol Hill to contact their members of Congress and urge them to support the 3 pieces of legislation that drew nearly 1,000 PTs, PTAs, and students to Washington, DC," says Justin Moore, PT, DPT, vice president of Government and Payment Advocacy. "It's imperative that all members reach out to their Senators and Representatives and ask them to support legislation to repeal the cap, expand the National Health Service Corps Repayment Program to include PTs, and protect student athletes from concussions."
If you weren't on Capitol Hill Thursday, you can still be part of this historic event. Watch a video and read firsthand accounts from rally attendees at Moving Forward. Go to APTA's Legislative Action Center to contact your members of Congress today.
