Are you ready for World Physical Therapy Day 2010?

It’s approaching that time of the year when planning for World Physical Therapy Day gets started. With nearly 40 of our member organisations marking the day during 2009, the WCPT are looking to make the events taking place in 2010 even bigger and better!

The highly topical Movement for Health theme will be continued with new materials to be added on active ageing, as well as a new article by WCPT President, Marilyn Moffat. Kickstart your thinking by taking a look at the existing “toolkit” providing practical advice on how to plan an event along with ideas for possible activities. Please go to http://www.wcpt.org/node/28728.

A further announcement will be made shortly once the new materials are available for download.

To view the activities which took place last year see the October ’09 issue of WCPT News,  http://www.wcpt.org/node/32150, and the WCPT website at http://www.wcpt.org/wptday#activities.
