HPA Catalyst Groups

Catalyst Groups serve as collection points for smaller groups of members who have an interest in an idea or initiative not represented adequately in other segments of APTA or HPA. These groups are informal networks of individual members with a shared interest in exploring a topic or interest area relevant to the profession of physical therapy.

HPA supports Catalyst Groups by providing a group discussion forum and a group contact. Please contact the group leader for additional information about the group.
