Listening Time — 46:55

Chase Kuhn, PT, DPT, and Nate Thomas, PT, DPT, didn’t know each other a few months ago, but once introduced they realized they have a few things in common.

Both PTs from the midwest, both having been selected as the APTA Harker Intern within APTA’s Government Affairs department, and serving as APTA Student Board President.

There's also at least one difference: Nate Thomas is running for a seat in the Missouri State House of Representatives.

Listen as these members discuss these professional experiences, Nate's evolution as a candidate, and how others can get engaged in ways big and small. For those who want to get involved, visit APTA Engage, APTA’s volunteer portal.
