  • PT in Motion Corrects 2014 Slate of Candidates Appearing in April Issue

    The listing of the 2014 candidates for APTA offices appearing in the printed edition of the April issue of PT in Motion contains 2 errors. The office of Speaker is incorrectly labeled “Secretary” and 2 candidates—not 1—are to be elected to the Nominating Committee.

    PT in Motion regrets the error.

    A corrected slate of candidates will appear in the May issue of PT in Motion. The online April edition of PT in Motion incorporates the corrections.

    The elections will take place during the 2014 House of Delegates Meeting in Charlotte.

    Get Your School on The List – Time Running Out to Join Miami-Marquette Challenge

    The deadline for donations to the Foundation's popular Miami – Marquette Challenge annual fundraising event is April 21, which means there's still time to join "The List" of over 60 physical therapist and physical therapist assistant education programs in a contest that can give your program national recognition—and a few prizes, too. Watch this video to learn more.

    The Miami-Marquette Challenge encourages students to develop creative ways to raise funds locally and awards prizes to the top performing schools. All participating schools will be recognized in several national publications, and the winning school gets the honor of cohosting next year's challenge. The program has become the Foundation’s largest fundraising event, with all contributions assisting the Foundation in awarding a research grant and a Promotion of Doctoral Studies Scholarship (PODS) to deserving researchers.

    Over its 25-year history, the Challenge has involved over 170 PT and PTA programs and raised more than $2.5 million for physical therapy research.

    Make your donation to this year's Miami-Marquette Challenge online or mail in the donation form (.pdf) to be sure your school or alma mater is on The List.
