How about we start blogging again here at NPA Think Tank! I’m off to my favorite conference of the year, the Annual Conference of The American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists.

I’ll be presenting on physical therapy in the evolving healthcare landscape. For now, here is my current landscape, the clouds over Atlanta.

  1. The AAOMPT student special interest group (sSIG) is organizing a grass roots letter writing campaign (… for ANYONE who can not attend AAOMPT National Conference. We will be compiling information on how to find your representatives, contact members of congress, talking points, and letter suggestions as well as timelines for contact. While this will be aimed at students, we want ANYONE and EVERYONE to participate.

    If you would please pass on this information we would be extremely appreciative. More information will be posted on the sSIG website/blog in the near future.

    The AAOMPT-sSIG grass roots letter writing campaign is an effort to support Capitol Hill Day 2009 which is co-sponsored by AAOMPT and the Orthopaedic Section of the APTA. This event will bring the physical therapy musculoskeletal message to the Hill! We envision students, clinicians, researchers, professors, and others passionate about the profession of physical therapy to blast the hill with letters of support and important information regarding physical therapy, physical therapy practice, and current legislation including health care reform. YOUR letters, e-mails, and phone calls will reinforce the group/personal meetings and messages of Capitol Hill day participants!

    If you are reading this we urge you to PLEASE pass this information forward and organize those that you can to participate.

    Individually, we can all make a small contribution whether an e-mail, a letter, or a phone call. Collectively, these individual contributions can make a REAL difference. These letters will support and reinforce the efforts of those able to participate in Capitol Hill Day. October is National Physical Therapy Month. Let us all contribute to this cause and let our voices be heard regarding the future of our beloved profession. Every letter, e-mail, and phone call helps!

  2. Glad to see you posting again. I understand how hard it is to find the time to fit in blogging with all your other professional and family responsibilities.
