Centennial Celebration

Celebrating 100 years of APTA


APTA RI has a few ideas to include members in this celebration.

 Tell us your Story or your Why



  • Stories for Social Media / Website
  • PT / PTAs in any setting
  • Retired therapists
  • Faculty
  • Students
  • Patients 
  • Other PT supporters - OT, SLP, MD, teachers

Questions to ask:
What does 100 years of APTA mean to you?

  • Tell a story by about an experience at an APTA event (CSM, HOD) or APTA RI event (Annual Meeting, socials, meetings). Make your story unique
  • Give a 1 - 2 sentence statement for social media about being a member, being a PT/ PTA
    Include a picture of the person.
  • Non PT / PTA - What does Physical Therapy mean to you? OR Have them say "Happy Birthday APTA"
  • Patients - What can you do now after PT
How to do a video:
Videos should be less than 30 seconds. 
Take the video horizontally on your phone. 
Make sure there isn't background noise or activity
Convert to MP4
Complete this form to submit your video
Statement and picture can be emailed directly to APTA RI
Submissions will be used on the APTA RI Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, newsletter and website.
The intent of these statements and videos is to promote Physical Therapy and the APTA Centennial NOT to promote a business.  All submissions will be reviewed for appropriatene criteria.
We hope to compile all into one video to share at our Annual Meeting and to save for the future.
