#ptagURit … Ready. Set. Go!

It’s time to play #ptagURit, PTAG’s new trivia game and scavenger hunt, leading up to 2016 Physical Therapy Day at the Georgia State Capitol on February 24th.

Join the fun …  #ptagURit.

What is it #ptagURit?

#ptagURit is a combination trivia game and scavenger hunt to kick-off 2016 Physical Therapy Day at the Capitol, which is February 24th.

How do I play?

Beginning Thursday, January 21st, trivia questions, scavenger hunt items and other “tasks” will be posted to the PTAG Facebook and PTAG Twitter pages. These same assignments will be sent out once per week – on Wednesdays – via eblast.

You simply post your answer, photo of your item or proof of the completed task to the PTAG Twitter page or PTAG Facebook page, using #ptagURit.

Each trivia question, scavenger hunt item or task will be worth a specified number of points.

Additionally, at the Physical Therapy Day at the Capitol morning breakfast on February 24th, a list of trivia questions, scavenger hunt items and tasks will be distributed which gives PTAG members the chance to win additional points.

Winners will be announced at the closing of Physical Therapy Day at the Capitol on February 24th.

How do I win – and what do I win?

The two PTAG members with the most points at the end of Physical Therapy Day at the Capitol on February 24th will receive a 30 oz. YETI® Rambler Tumbler and the second place winner will receive a 20 oz. YETI Rambler Tumbler.

Don’t know what a YETI is? It’s simply the coolest (and hottest) stainless steel tumbler – and one of the most sought-after holiday gifts. PTAG was on the leading edge of the trend and able to scavenge a few off the shelves before they were snagged by holiday shoppers.

How will I know if I am winning or if I need to step up my game?

Points will be tallied at the end of each week and posted to the #ptagURit Scorecard, which will be posted on Facebook Page and sent out via the Wednesday eblast.

PTAG President Earns Spotlight at National Conference

FullSizeRender (13)

At the annual American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) Conference in Denver, PTAG’s own president, Dr. Joe Donnelly PT, DHS, OCS was presented with its State Legislative Leadership Award for his outstanding efforts during the 2015 Georgia General Assembly Session.

Joe, who also serves as a Mercer University clinical associate professor, successfully organized and led a grassroots initiative comprised of more than 2,300 PTAG members and students, a legislative lobbying team and patients to modernize and, ultimately, to improve access to physical therapy services for the citizens of Georgia.

Under Joe’s steadfast leadership, the legislative campaign culminated with the passage of House Bill 505 with overwhelming, bi-partisan support in both chambers of the Georgia General Assembly. This comprehensive legislation allows Georgians to access physical therapy treatments without the referral of a physician, which forgoes unnecessary barriers to physical therapy and reduces the costs in terms of requiring unnecessary office visits, extra out-of-pocket co-pays and treatment delays.

Joe’s commitment to advocate for the physical therapy profession and to improve the healthcare delivery system through positive, meaningful legislative action sets a truly inspiring example for his peers, students and patients.

We are proud to congratulate and recognize our president, Joe, for this wonderful achievement.
