REGISTER NOW! NCPTA Fall Conference 2018 on October 18-20 at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro.

There will be a selection of respected speakers and a variety of 36 courses to choose from. Two Orthopedic tracks are scheduled each day, one Neuro track on Thursday and Friday and a Pediatric track on Saturday. Each day will include a Special Topics track which will include courses such as Medical Therapeutic Yoga, Exercise Intolerance in Cancer Survivors, and Treating the Whole Patient.

The Keynote Luncheon this year will be held on Friday, rather than Saturday, featuring Josh Cleland, PT PhD talking on "Evidence about the Evidence," a discussion on how the evidence informs clinical practice guidelines. Critical appraisal of guidelines will be discussed using examples from both the physical therapy and medical communities. The Keynote Luncheon will be immediately followed by the NCPTA Business Meeting.

Town Hall Meeting and "Meet the Candidate" -- This year we will be introducing a new feature on Saturday at lunch. President Kyle Covington will host a town hall meeting to discuss issues important to the chapter and candidates running for office will be able to introduce themselves.

Election of Officers -- Because of the by-law that was passed last year, officers will not be elected before and during conference, but rather after the fall conference. This will allow candidates to be nominated from the floor of the business meeting on Friday.
