About APTA Founders' Day: 100 years ago today, APTA’s founders held their meeting at Keen’s Steakhouse in New York City to discuss launching an organization to represent physical therapy. Over the last century, APTA has become the voice of the profession and with its components and members, led its growth and evolution. Through two world wars and global pandemics across the last 100 years, APTA and its members have stepped up and met the challenges in the relentless pursuit of improving the lives of their patients. Happy birthday APTA!! Here’s to the next 100 years! #APTA100
