APTA centennial events are fast approaching, and the FOMO is real.

Fortunately, we make it easy to tune in virtually to some of the most notable parts of the happenings Sept. 10-14 in Washington, D.C., and Alexandria, Virginia — including a very special Future of Physical Therapy Summit.

Here's a quick rundown of the centennial events that you can view via livestream. (Note: links to the Sept. 10 livestreams will be activated at the start time of each event).

APTA's 26th Maley lecturer is an impassioned advocate for patient-centered care that challenges the basic assumptions around pain treatment, and a critic of systemic agricultural and other practices that have affected the overall function of many Americans. "What we believe about pain is killing us," he says. Not to be missed.
