Eva Norman, PT, DPT, has been a force in federal and state-level advocacy for physical therapy for nearly two decades, and a mentor to aspiring advocates for nearly as long. Currently, she is chair of the PT-PAC, the profession's political action committee, but her involvement also includes service as a Federal Affairs Liaison from the Minnesota Chapter of APTA and as an APTA "Key Contact" — a member who serves as the primary contact with their state’s U.S. senators or representatives. She owns Live Your Life Physical Therapy, a cash-based wellness and prevention-focused clinic that offers physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and a range of other services. Norman is a certified exercise expert for aging adults. 

APTA caught up with Norman to find out how she got started in advocacy, her thoughts on its importance, and how APTA members and stakeholders can get involved.
