CSM Conference – Washington, D.C.
The American Physical Therapy Association held their annual Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) conference last week, the largest conference of physical therapy in the nation—and SPEAR was there to take part in it! Held in Washington D.C., thousands of people were in attendance, including close to 16,000 industry professionals and students. It was a great occasion for members of the physical therapy community to get together and share their growing knowledge and expertise. It was also a fantastic opportunity for students and future physical therapists alike to learn about the ever-evolving science of the PT world, learn how to become involved in the community, and gain some answers and pertinent information to their questions.

SPEAR was on-site to offer our knowledge and stir up a little fun, too! We hosted a complimentary cocktail hour for students right in the lobby of the Renaissance Hotel, complete with a selfie photo booth section where guests and friends could use some fun props and take some awesome pictures. We had a great turnout with approximately 90 attendees, including APTA’s vice president and the New York Physical Therapy Association (NYPTA) president who stopped by to say hello! It was an ideal space perfect for generating some great conversations among students and physical therapyprofessionals
Not only were attendees able to ask questions about what it’s like to work within the PT realm on a daily basis—they also learned why SPEAR is such an incredible place to work. Our fantastic team leaders were able to provide insight on SPEAR’s mission and values, and how our defining factors can help them excel in their current and future careers. With so many opportunities to grow with SPEAR, it was a wonderful time to spread the word and let people know what we’re all about. SPEAR is committed to bringing A-players onboard to experience the motivation, drive, empathy and spirit that all our team members share in common. Our team is the core of SPEAR and what pushes us to be great, and as a result, consistently provide the most excellent care for our patients.
