Thursday, August 02, 2012 Start Planning Now for National Physical Therapy Month Plan now to make this your best National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM) event yet. Go to www.apta.org/NPTM for this year's tools and resources. Start with the 2012 NPTM Event Planning Guide for specific information about conducting a successful community event. Next, check out the links to tools and resources designed specifically for this year's celebration, such as a sample proclamation for your governor or mayor, sample press release, logos, and web buttons. New tools will be added in the coming weeks, such as an event flyer template and downloadable NPTM bookmarks to give to patients and members of your community. And, learn how you can participate in APTA's public relations initiative, "Fit After 50," kicking off during NPTM.
