We are pleased to announce that APTANJ member, Haim Nesser, PT, DPT, CCI, CEEAA, LSVT BIG, has been named State Advocate on behalf of the APTA-Geriatric. Haim is also the event coordinator for the APTANJ Geriatric SIG and clinical liaison for the APTA Geriatric Balance & Fall SIG. As a State Advocate, he will work at the local level to advocate for older adults within the state of New Jersey. Some of the responsibilities of an Advocate are:

  1. Provide two-way communication between APTA Geriatric and the chapter.
  2. Communicate with AGPT members within your state when there are geriatric-related issues, courses, meetings, etc. in your chapter.
  3. Hold at least two activities within your chapter each year to promote increased awareness and knowledge of PT for older adults.

There are currently two community events being organized for 2020; one in Monmouth County for May and one in Ocean County for September. More details will be made available in the near future.

Congratulations to Haim on the appointment; we wish him well in his new role.
