2016 PT Day at the Capitol

Attention Physical Therapists, Physical Therapists Assistants, Student PTs & Student PTAs:

Wednesday, February 24 from 7:30 AM - 2:00 PM, PTAG hosted the 2016 PT Day at the Capitol and we need your help! #PTAGURit

2016Logo

 

This coordinated grassroots event will allow members and non-members to participate in a full agenda of activities demonstrating the physical therapy profession’s strong presence in Georgia and shining light on current issues affecting our practice.

It is essential that we have a strong turnout for this event, and you can help!

In addition to photo opportunities, recognition by the state legislature and constituent meetings, we will have a room on the main level of the Capitol hosting a variety of fitness assessment stations (balance, blood pressure, golf and grip strength) run by volunteers in shifts. This will allow legislators and staff to become actively engaged, get to know our organization and learn about the cost savings benefits of physical therapy. 

Thank you to the over 300 attendees who made PT Day at the Capitol a HUGE success! Let’s keep the momentum going!
