Let's Celebrate National Physiotherapy Month! In the spirit of National Physiotherapy Month, show your support for physiotherapy by making a tax-deductible donation that will fund cutting-edge research for years to come. Take the lead and invest in your profession and help ensure our patients receive the best possible care. Last year, the Foundation awarded $72,000 to physiotherapy researchers and supported 18 unique projects. Regrettably, each year there are dozens of promising research proposals – research that could be breaking new ground and pushing the boundaries of physiotherapy – we cannot afford to assist. Please consider making a generous donation to your Foundation today! Thank you for your support!

It also intends to recognize the contribution that NPAA members make to the profession and to CPA. Awards are made for up to $2,500, jointly funded by CPA and PFC. The grant is open to any member of NPAA in good standing. Please note that this award is only offered to PTA's, not for students.
