Annual Conference 2015: Call for Presentations!

OPTA is seeking presentation proposals for Annual Conference 2015, to be held April 10-11, 2015. Proposals are due by August 1, 2014.

She is a retired NASA physiologist and her most recent book provides insight on activity promotion and healthy lifestyle, “Sitting Kills, Moving Heals: How Everyday Movement Will Prevent Pain, Illness and Early Death - and Exercise Alone Won't.”

OPTA is seeking presentations that will provide education to promote and support health and wellness for physical therapy practitioners.
