APTA CSM #SocialPT: Transforming Society Through Social Media

APTA CSM 2017 is almost here!

I’m excited to speak to the new grads this year! I’ll be presenting at APTA CSM 2017 and discussing the challenges that I faced after graduating from PT school, as well as the tools you can utilize to get your name out there and build foundations for your career.

I’ll be presenting with Ben Fung of UpDoc Media, Rich Severin of Physical Therapy Reviewer, and Greg Todd of Smart Success PT. Hope to see you all there!

Come see us on Friday, February 17th from 3:00-5:00 PM for #SocialPT: Transforming Society Through Social Media (HGCC, 206A • CP-2C-8658 • Cosponsor: Private Practice Section).

I’m feeling pretty nostalgic right now, so I figured I’d share some memories from APTA CSM 2016.

Was great getting to meet Miye from Therapy Exam Prep.
