Greetings Western District membership!

Are you tired of your patients paying very high co-payments for physical therapy?

Let your legislators know how you feel! Encourage them to support our High Co-Pay bill (S 2319 DEFRANCISCO/ A 1666 CAHILL) and other important physical therapy related legislation.

Attend Lobby day Tuesday May 13th, 2014 at the Legislative Office Building, Albany, NY!
Sign up by April 25th, 2014 to ensure a seat on the bus from Buffalo!
Visit www.nypta.org and go to lobby day information, click the “Register Today”.

Thank you,
Curtis Paine, PT, DPT
Western District Legislative Liaison
