PT Day of Service

PT Day of Service is a relatively new initiative that has exponentially grown since its inception only a few years ago to make a GLOBAL connection with GLOBAL impact.
This year we are hoping to garner support all over the great state of New Hampshire from students to experienced clinicians, APTA members and non-members, to make an impact in the places we live.
 
PT Day of Service is October 12th
Below are some options to meet with fellow colleagues and participate. NHAPTA Board members will be your contact, see below.
 
Can't commit to one of those dates but want to participate?
You can give to a local food pantry:
 
Or you can also be involved by choosing a local blood drive.
  • Find a blood drive near you
 
Please plan to complete service before Oct 12th as October is PT Month and we want to get it posted to the PT Day of Service Website.
If you do something on your own - we will need you to let an ambassador (any contact below) know so we can record it on the PT Day of Service (PTDOS) site or you can register your own involvement directly on PTDOS link. http://ptdayofservice.com/
All avenues of service to our community are welcome and may be considered, so if you have an idea, please share with one of the team members!
           
Please reach out to any of us with questions or to get involved at any time!
 
We look forward to your assistance and making this year our biggest collaboration to date for the New Hampshire Physical Therapy Community!
