We need your help as part of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) committee! We welcome all individuals who are passionate about advancing DEI in physical therapy. We highly encourage participation by people who can represent and accurately advocate for under-represented populations, including, but not limited to: Black and indigenous people, people of color, older adults, gender, LGBTQIA+ communities, those with differing physical and cognitive abilities, those with lower socioeconomic status, etc. Participation by those passionate about this cause are also welcome.
This is an essential role necessary for increasing awareness, education, and outreach to address educational and healthcare disparities amongst marginalized populations. We also strive to promote more diverse representation within our profession, optimizing our goal for practicing quality, patient-centered care.
