The physical therapy profession's advocacy voice continues to grow stronger. And now's your chance to join in.

Coming April 14-16: APTA Capitol Hill Day, a one-of-a-kind event that brings together PTs, PTAs, and students from across the country for a day of focused, in-person engagement with legislators and their staff. It's an opportunity to make direct connections with policymakers to educate them on the value of physical therapy and the changes needed to improve patient access to needed care. But it's more than a one-day experience.

The visit to Capitol Hill, on April 16, comes after a day of education around some of the major issues facing the profession, as well as training on how to make your meetings with legislators as effective as possible. The program includes special speakers, breakout sessions (including one specifically for students), and state delegation meetings — all capped off by a party to celebrate PTPAC, the profession's political action committee. Cost is $250 for APTA members, $100 for students, and free for Federal Affairs Liaisons, PTPAC Eagle Club members, and APTA component executive directors.

Registered attendees will also be able to participate in an exclusive pre-event webinar on April 10 at 8 p.m. ET that will provide information on logistics and target advocacy issues, with a recording available for registrants who can't make the live event.

Check out the tentative agenda, watch a video, and register now at the APTA Capitol Hill Day webpage.
