    APTA Exhibits at 2011 NCSL Annual Conference

    APTA was again a leading exhibitor at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Annual Conference, held August 8-11, at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. APTA's participation in the sixth annual NCSL "Walk for Wellness" and the association's information booth were prominent features at this year's event. In addition, more than 300 attendees took the PT Challenge at the association's exhibit booth. Participants who correctly answered questions on direct access, protection for the term "physical therapy," and the detrimental effect of high patient copays for physical therapist services were entered in a drawing for a Kindle or an iPod shuffle. Both activities drew numerous state lawmakers to association's booth where APTA State Affairs staff and volunteers from the Texas Chapter educated them about direct access to physical therapist services, referral for profit (POPTS), infringement concerns, reimbursement challenges, and other issues important to the physical therapy profession at the state level.
