A Milestone Year: Foundation 2019 Report Highlights a Year of Change and Hope

In this most recent annual report, FPTR would like to take a moment of hope in this time of uncertainty. In 2019, FPTR celebrated our 40th anniversary. The year marked 4 decades of Foundation funded research and the accomplishments of those who were able to launch their careers with Foundation support. Additionally, we funded 28 promising physical therapist researchers in 2019. We believe these researchers, like many FPTR alum, will make important contributions to the profession and our future. We could not have done this without your support. Thank youRead More >>
