Despite extensive efforts to raise awareness of and address the human toll of the opioid epidemic, Americans continue to be prescribed and to abuse opioids at alarming rates. This October, APTA will carry on raising awareness of physical therapy as a safe and effective alternative to opioids for the long-term treatment of chronic pain via its award-winning #ChoosePT campaign.
You can learn about #ChoosePT and find ways to support APTA's efforts locally by visiting the online Campaign Toolkit.
Due to the disruption caused throughout the state of Florida and overall poor timing, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Advances in Exercise in Aging Adults for the PTA which had been planned for November 18-19 in Altamonte Springs, FL. Anyone who had previously registered and paid will receive a full refund. We apologize for this inconvenience and hope to reschedule this course again in the near future. Please watch for updates regarding when the course will be offered again on the AGPT website.
