Posted by <Sam Elhindi>

On February 15th, Advanced Travel Therapy is heading to San Antonio, Texas to take part in the APTA Combined Sections Meeting. Yes, that’s right folks. This year we head to the home of the Alamo, the hub of the beloved (or envied) Spurs, the backdrop to the gorgeous River Walk, and the state where everything is bigger for the biggest physical therapy conference in the nation! So if you aren’t excited yet, you should be.

What to expect?
APTA CSM offers an opportunity to learn, grow, and network with 11,000 physical therapy professionals, many of the best and brightest from across the country. The convention is scheduled to take place in three locations: The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center- a destination that truly showcases the city’s culture and history, the Grand Hyatt San Antonio, and the Hilton Palacio del Rio, both hotels only steps from the River Walk.  The programming for this year’s event was designed by all 18 APTA specialty sections from Acute Care to Women’s Health. No matter where your passion lies, someone will be tugging on your heart strings at this 4 day event.
