It’s October and that means it’s time to paaartay—not just at our PPS 2012 After Party, but everywhere, all month long in celebration of all our fabulous rehab therapists. In addition to cake, ice cream, high-fives, and everything else party themed, it’s our opportunity to reach out to the community and educate them on the unique benefits of PT treatments. (Want some tips? Check out our webinar on Marketing the PT Profession.)
The APTA wants to help you reach out, too. They’ve got the NPTM logo and graphics you can place on your website, social pages, or blog as well as NPTM-themed clothing and accessories. Meanwhile, Move Forward is raising awareness around sports injury therapy while celebrating. Check out this letter from the President of the APTA to learn more about their specific initiatives.
How is your clinic celebrating? Are you doing anything in particular to raise awareness and educate online or within your community? Share in the comments below.
