With the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, many of us are dealing with the loss of power, water, heat and disrupted communication, not to mention all those who suffered devastating loss of property, particularly the Jersey Shore. 
 
To help our physical therapy community APTAnj has set up a “Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund.” Your donation to the APTAnj Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund will go directly to physical therapists, physical therapist assistants and their families.
 
Along with our call for action, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia has donated $5,000 to the New Jersey chapter (APTAnj) for disaster relief in our state.
