  • Support Provided to Oklahoma After Tornado

    APTA has reached out to the Oklahoma Chapter offering our condolences, assistance, and support following the devastating tornado this week. The chapter board has voted to designate funds toward relief efforts, with matching funds provided from APTA. Through its social media outlets and other channels, the chapter continues to reach out to identify those in the physical therapy community directly affected by the storms. At this time, a designated fund for relief efforts to directly benefit our community has not been established.

    Members interested in contributing to relief efforts are encouraged to donate to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
