Wednesday, January 18, 2012 Section on Research Pledges $30,000 to Foundation APTA's Section on Research has pledged to donate $30,000 over the next 3 years to support research in physical therapy. "The Foundation [for Physical Therapy] put research on the map, and by helping to develop physical therapist investigators, the Foundation was instrumental in building a culture of research," said Section President Christopher Powers, PT, PhD. "Now that we have that culture, it is a matter of sustaining it and bringing it to the next level." In addition to the 3-year pledge, the section also donated $5,000 to the Jayne L. Snyder Endowment Fund, in memory of Snyder, who passed away in October. Read more in this press release.
