Sue’s Morning Stretch: Physical therapists take on Chicago

SHARE Sue’s Morning Stretch: Physical therapists take on Chicago

It started with a few physical therapists in Oregon getting together. Word of what was going on spread over social media and next thing you knew, PTs were getting together with their colleagues in 120 cities in 40 states and seven foreign countries.

Now, a year after the first PT Pub Night began, a national get-together will take place Friday through Sunday in Chicago.

Organizers says PT Pub Night started out as a casual get-together, but morphed into a local, then national, network where PTs, assistants and physical therapy students could talk about their industry, innovations and challenges.

The weekend includes a pizza party, Cubs game, pub crawl and brunch. For more details, visit here. Also, early registration ($179 for professionals, $79 for students) ends Thursday, July 31, so get moving.
