Students are the future of our profession, but they are an even more meaningful voice in our advocacy efforts right now.

APTA's Flash Action Strategy, led by PT and PTA students rallies our community around important issues affecting our profession and the people we serve. Since the beginning of Flash Action Strategy 10 years ago, students have sent over 88,000 letters to Congress. The goal of Flash Action Strategy 2023 is to send 5,000 letters to Congress over the two-day event.

The 2023 event will occur September 20-21. This year, Flash Action Strategy will focus on H.R. 2480, the Optimizing Postpartum Outcomes Act (H.R. 2480). Many postpartum individuals – and their providers – are unaware of how pelvic health physical therapy can address many of the complications arising from birth and pregnancy. H.R. 2480 would raise awareness of the availability and importance of pelvic health physical therapy for postpartum women.
