In celebration of APTA's "100 Days of Service" initiative and National Physical Therapy Month in October, we're taking a look at some of our members' community service efforts. In this installment: Ricardo Fernandez, PT, PhD, shares how he combined his love for the physical therapy profession with his sense of gratitude for those who served in the U.S. military and their families.
How have you given back during National Physical Therapy Month or throughout the year?
There are many opportunities available for PTs to serve their communities beyond clinical practice. I have attempted to use my talents, skills, and passions to make a positive difference in the lives of those who are serving or have served our country — our wounded warriors, service members, veterans, and their families.
