PT-PAC is the sole fundraising organization that allows the physical therapy profession to channel its financial and grassroots support to help elect candidates to Congress who are responsive to the physical therapy profession's goals and viewpoints. The Student Stars Club allows students to be recognized for their contributions to the PT-PAC.
To become a Student Star you need to contribute at least $20 in a calendar year. You will receive a thank you letter and Student Stars lapel pin (which is great to wear during conferences), a t-shirt, and your name will be published in APTA's PT in Motion magazine. This year, Student Stars are that support the PT-PAC by participating in the Flash Action Strategy, September 14-15, also may be eligible to win additional prizes. Learn more about the 2016 Flash Action Strategy.
Make a statement to your classmates, professors, and clinical instructors that shows you are aware and concerned about political issues that involve physical therapy and you are willing to put in a little more to help that cause. Become a Student Star.
Note: Contributions to PT-PAC are not tax deductible as charitable contributions. Contributions are voluntary. Your contribution will be used to support candidates for federal office who support physical therapy issues. The amount given by the contributor, or the refusal to give, will not benefit or disadvantage the person being solicited.
