Making a difference in the lives of patients and clients is what physical therapy is all about. But transforming lives does not stop at the clinic.

For the Global PT Day of Service we unite our international physical therapy community by giviging back to our local communitiese reach out to our communities.

Join PTs, PTAs, students, and physical therapy staff from across the world Saturday, October 12, 2020, to participate in a day of service that gives back to the community.
