October is National Physical Therapy Month, as it has been dubbed by the American Physical Therapy Association, and the month serves as a time to recognize the impact PTs and PTAs have on their patients’ lives and in their communities.
One way to celebrate is by participating in the Global PT Day of Service on October 14th. Founded two years ago by a team of passionate PTs, PTDOS has seen over 8,000 PT and PTA volunteers make a difference across 42 countries around the globe. PTDOS encourages PTs and PTAs to give back to their communities by working in a pro bono physical therapy clinic, serving in a soup kitchen, cleaning up a community garden, or via any other means that contributes to the greater good.
PTs and PTAs, will you take the pledge to give back this year? If so, click here to pledge to serve.
