There is no cost to join DavisPTnetwork, and currently there are over 2,600 members.
“The Foundation for Physical Therapy would like to thank DavisPTnetwork for using their recent membership campaign as an opportunity to raise funds and awareness for the Foundation,” says Robert J.

“We’re pleased that we were able to help the Foundation for Physical Therapy successfully raise both awareness and funds for the important PT research their organization supports,” says Margaret Biblis, F.A. Davis Publisher, Professions/Medicine. “This is a wonderful example of the PT community working together to make a difference.”
The mission of the Foundation for Physical Therapy the principal and only nationwide physical therapy foundation—is to fund research that supports the development of evidence-based physical therapist practice, enhance the quality of physical therapist services for patients and clients, and increase the number of physical therapist researchers.
