News, Announcements and Events


The Texas Physical Therapy Association would like to sincerely apologize for some content, remarks, and images that some may have seen earlier during a virtual North Texas District event.

The meeting was hacked by an unidentified, outside source. We are terribly disappointed that the Zoom platform we have successfully used for several months during these unprecedented times was compromised.

We have notified Zoom of the breach and hope it encourages them to continuously make improvements to their security measures. Additionally, TPTA will take additional safety precautions for future online meetings.
