TPTA ATTENDS FEDERAL AFFAIRS FORUM

April 29th – May 30th the APTA held its annual Federal Advocacy Forum in Washington, DC. The group representing the TPTA and APTA from Tennessee participated in meetings with APTA legislative staff and on May 1st met with the Health Policy Legislative Assistants for Senator Alexander and Senator Corker along with  Legislative Assistants for many of our US Representatives. Among the items discussed were the PROSPER Act, Sports Medicine Clarity Act, Physical Therapists providing care through telehealth, and areas where Physical Therapy could assist with the Opioid epidemic. A dynamic group represented our profession and held thorough discussions on legislative issues that affect our profession, our future professionals (students), our patients, and the public by sharing their knowledge and experiences.
