TSPTA

What is the Texas Student Physical Therapy Association (TSPTA)?
It is the student voice of the TPTA by communicating through a liaison network. The TSPTA notifies TPTA student members of current events affecting PT and PTA students. The goal is to create an informed student body which will actively participate in the decision making process  of the TPTA.
