President's Message

Posted: February 25, 2021

Participation is Key!

As we wrap up the final week of the virtual Combined Sections Meeting month-long event, I invite every Home Health Section member to join us this evening for our Annual Business Meeting!  We have a full slate of activities planned as we share our year in review, thank our volunteers, acknowledge our award recipients, and plan for our collective future.  

Come, hear more about what is happening as we look forward to our new designation as an Academy, and pursue rebranding in alignment with the APTA at large.  It is a great time to meet new people, visit with friends, and even enjoy a cocktail . . . if you are so inclined!   

There remains much to do as we look toward the future of the Academy, and we are only able to accomplish such endeavors through the generous participation of you, our members!  I invite you to become engaged in our work . . . participation is key! 

Looking forward to seeing you all tonight!! 

As always, be vigilant.  Be prepared.  Stay informed.  Get vaccinated.
