Make sure you vote in the AASPT elections - voting opened April 1st and lasts for the whole month of April!Read more below about Shelly's platform👇👇I am passionate about belonging to AASPT and have since I was a student member. My work ethic, knowledge, leadership, and passion to improve sports PT is evident in all I do and have done. But we need to focus on the future, not the past.My plans are to:1. Increase the number of board-certified sports PTs & make it valuable to them. We need to continue to offer exceptional opportunities for members & for those who take the next step to certify2. Open the invitations to more young professionals into our space. They don’t need to wait “their turn” to lead in our organization. Professional development is essential at any career stage!3. Improve diversity and representation for minorities and women at the Academy. These groups are breaking ground across all areas of sports in research, clinical care, & at all levels. We need to hear & support them.Our reach MUST extend further than we have done in the past. We need to supercharge the education we provide to PT students so they can make informed choices regarding residency and help them develop long and short-term AASPT involvement goals.Got questions?

Chief Executive Albert Bourla said it is likely that people who receive Covid-19 vaccines will need booster shots within a year afterward, and then annual vaccinations, to maintain protection against the virus as it evolves.“The variants will play a key role. It is extremely important to suppress the pool of people that can be susceptible to the virus,” Mr. Bourla said during a virtual event hosted by CVS Health Corp. that aired Thursday but was recorded April 1.“There are vaccines like polio where one dose is enough,” Mr. Bourla said. “And there are vaccines like flu that you need every year.
