In 2021 we continued to publish perspectives from members and occasionally others such as Darren Brown, a physiotherapist in the U.K., that educated, inspired, and reminded us that we're part of a thriving community.

We're grateful for those who took the time to share their thoughts, and we hope their words get more APTA members to consider contributing.

Have a story to tell? Let us know through the APTA Engage volunteer portal.
