These accounts from members of the profession about their experiences during the national health emergency created by the spread of COVID-19 were compiled in April. We don’t know how the nation’s landscape will look in July when you receive this issue of APTA Magazine, but we do know that our members have been making the profession proud with their actions, despite hardships and struggles in adapting physical therapist practice to make a difference for patients either fighting the disease or needing other services. To preserve contributors’ full voices, these accounts are largely in their original formats — email messages, essays, social media posts, and more.
