  • New American Diabetes Association Patient Resource Available for Free to PTs, PTAs

    Physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) have access to a new free resource for patients and clients recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, courtesy of the American Diabetes Association (ADA).

    Called "Where Do I Begin," the 16-page guide helps patients and clients understand the fundamentals of type 2 diabetes and the steps that can be taken to live with the disease. The publication includes information on the role of exercise, proper diet, medicines, and support in managing the condition, and encourages patients to sign up for a free 1-year ADA program called "Living With Type 2 Diabetes."

    The booklets are being offered at no charge. PTs and PTAs interested in obtaining copies of "Where Do I Begin" can order online.


    • On the actual form, you have to choose a suffix after your name, however, neither PT or PTA are options listed!! So I would have to pick "none" if I wanted to order this... Please advise them to include PT and PTA as suffixes among MD, RN, PA, PhD, etc...
