- Stay up-to-date with research journal publications
- Network with other physical therapy students and current practicing physical therapists
- Educate healthcare consumers (and providers!) about the value a physical therapist can provide
- Advocate for the physical therapy profession
*Note: the video starts late; my first sentence is, "if advocating for the physical therapy profession is important to you, please stand up."
*Edit: When describing Twitter, I misspoke- "tweeting" is not something you physically do!
