2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first physical therapist assistant (PTA) graduates. Though a half-century may seem like a long time, the rise of the PTA from something that seemed like a good idea to a recognized, well-established, and in-demand profession integral to health care represents a remarkably short ascendance. Today, it's hard to imagine the delivery of physical therapy without PTAs on the team.

Join us in celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the PTA on Thursday, May 30th at Industry Brewing Co. in Peoria!

Learn more about how the PTA profession came into being, and what's happened since.
