A Look Back at 2013
This is my last note as ASHT President. I am honored to have served you.
ASHT has had a busy and successful year. Some of the highlights include:
3,298 members strong
869 attendees at ASHT's 36th Annual Meeting, Chicago (highest attendance since 2005)
Share the gLOVEs initiative at the Annual Meeting
7 Webinars, 6 Hands On Orthotics courses, 3 Hand Therapy Review Courses
OrthoEvidence trial membership
Two new position papers: Evidence-Based Practice in Hand Therapy and Direct Access for Hand Therapy Services
3 chapters of Clinical Assessment Recommendations on ASHT website
ASHT representation at 2013 APTA Federal Affairs and AOTA Capital Hill Day
With the good is also the sad. We lost founding member and past President Judy Bell Krotoski, MA, LOTR, CHT and honorary member James Hunter, MD. May they rest peacefully and shine upon us.
Best of the New Year to all our members! You are why we do what we do.
What events have charged your year? Discuss….
