Do you value what you do? Of course! We all feel we have a critical role to play in the rehabilitation of our clients. Hand Therapy Week aims to raise awareness of the hand therapy specialty among various audiences, including primary care providers, surgeons, referral sources and the public. This is our chance to promote ourselves and increase awareness of our advanced specialty and our special skills!

Not sure how to get involved? Use social media sources like Facebook and Twitter to share your enthusiasm. (Be sure to use #HTW2016 in your posts and tag us on Facebook and Twitter @HandTherapyASHT.) Take advantage of marketing resources, such as our Hand Therapy Week flyers, intended for surgeons, primary care physicians and the public. These flyers also provide space where you can add contact information for your practice via label, sticker, stamp, etc. You can also use ASHT’s popular Patient Education Resources, including four new resources released in time for Hand Therapy Week 2016. ASHT has also created a page of celebration ideas, so visit our new website and join the fun!

Whatever you choose to do, we hope you will share it with us. Send a photo, video or link of your 2016 Hand Therapy Week celebrations to ASHT@asht.org, and you'll be entered to win ASHT prizes! Participants and their submissions will be acknowledged on the ASHT website and social media channels. Contest submissions are due June 22, 2016.

Thank you to our 2016 sponsors!
