ILLINOIS BECOMES 45th STATE TO PASS LEGISLATION ALLOWING DIRECT ACCESS TO PHYSICAL THERAPISTS

Dear members,

Today is a great day for physical therapy in Illinois.  We thank everyone who helped raise awareness of the important role that physical therapists and physical therapist assistants play in optimizing the health and wellness of all populations in Illinois.

We are grateful for the support of the Illinois legislature as well as the efforts of our past IPTA leaders who have worked towards this moment.

Please take a few minutes today to relish in this victory and imagine the possibilities that direct access affords both our patients and our profession.

Yours truly,
Mike Riley, PT
IPTA President


Colleen Flannery
IPTA Executive Director

 


Today, IPTA President Mike Riley and Executive Director Colleen Flannery were by the Governor’s side as he signed direct access to physical therapists into law.

The IPT-PAC

The passing of direct access wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our PAC contributors.
