  • Remember to Vote For Your Favorite 'Fit After 50' Member

    Voting for APTA's "Fit After 50 Member Challenge" winner is in full swing! The top 10 featured finalists were nominated for their commitment to being fit, active, and mobile at age 50+. Read their stories and vote for the member who you feel is most active and fit and who inspires others to be the same. The winner should also have served the 50+ community and promoted the role of the physical therapist. Encourage your friends, family, community, and colleagues also to vote. Voting is open until April 5. The top 3 winners will receive prizes from APTA and recognition at the APTA Conference and Exposition in June.
