APTA's Vision Statement for the Physical Therapy Profession: "Transforming society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience," was adopted by APTA's House of Delegates (House) in 2013.
It's a concise vision, and the House spent hours discussing each word.
During the course of that discussion, California delegate Terrence M. Nordstrom, PT, EdD, spoke about what the words "human experience" meant to him. His comments symbolized the nature of the discussion and the desire of delegates to create a meaningful vision.
