PT Day of Service

Making a difference in the lives of patients and clients is what physical therapy is all about. Yet, transforming lives does not stop at the clinic, we reach out to our communities and look for ways to give back. Join PTs, PTAs, students, and physical therapy staff from across the world Saturday, October 12, 2019, to participate in a day of service that gives back to the community.
