Participate by Taking Action September 18-19, 2019
Join in with APTA advocates from all over the country in this year's Flash Action Strategy. This year we are focusing on support for our House and Senate bills that would help the opioid epidemic by ensuring rural and underserved areas have access to physical therapists.
What: Flash Action Strategy (FAS) is an annual student-led advocacy campaign conducted in collaboration with APTA.
Why: This year's FAS works to support efforts for the National Health Service Corps to include physical therapists in the loan repayment program. If passed into law, the program would send the PTs into rural and underserved areas and help address the nation’s opioid crisis in areas that have been especially hard-hit.
