Excellent job on this comprehensive list of resources. I would suggest adding Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy for updates on changes to PT and PTA exams and licensing changes. Thank you again for a great job. Nancy Kirsch

Well done Dan & Debbie! Very comprehensive list of resources to help all PTs & PTAs, as well as our NJ consumers. Thank you for helping us fast-track our way through this. Maybe our forced experiences with some of these new approaches to managing patients and daily tasks will end up a silver lining toward creating a more efficient new norm in healthcare. Stay well.
