Monday, September 30, 2019 2019 APTA Honors and Awards Nominations Now Open Members of the physical therapy profession do amazing things for people every day, and not just inside the walls of a clinic. And with National Physical Therapy Month upon us, now's the perfect time to honor those contributions by nominating an APTA member for national recognition through the APTA Honors & Awards program. The APTA Honors & Awards program is now accepting nominations for the 2020 awards cycle, an annual effort aimed at celebrating members' outstanding achievements in the areas of education, practice and service, publications, research, and academic excellence. In 2017 the awards program was expanded to include humanitarian work and societal impact, and this year's awards program features 2 new opportunities: outstanding physical therapist fellow and outstanding physical therapist resident. The program also includes the Catherine Worthingham Fellows of APTA, the Mary McMillan Lecture Award, and the John H.P. Maley Lecture Award. Detailed award descriptions, eligibility information, and nomination instructions for these and the many other awards and honors in the program are available on the APTA Honors & Awards webpage. Deadline for nominations is December 1. Award winners will be recognized at the 2020 NEXT Conference and Exhibition, set for June 3-6 in Phoenix. For more information, email Alissa Patanarut.
