The California Physical Therapy Association (CPTA), in collaboration with the California PT Fund (CAL-PT-Fund), has pledged $100,000 toward a Foundation for Physical Therapy project that would create the nation's first Center of Excellence for Health Services and Health Policy Research dedicated to training physical therapist researchers.
The Foundation already has received more than $2 million of the $3 million needed to establish the center, which will be devoted to training the next generation of physical therapist (PT) investigators equipped with the skills to examine and analyze physical therapy delivery, organization, financing, and outcomes. The Center of Excellence will build on the Foundation's efforts to support scientifically based and clinically relevant research in physical therapy.
The Foundation issued a press release on the pledge, and is encouraging other states to join California in making a commitment to development of the center. Individual tax-deductible contributions are also accepted and can be made online or by postal mail at 1111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, VA 22314. For more information, contact Barbara Malm or call 800/875-1378.
