OUTGOING PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
With the end of my term as OPTA President just a few days away I want to express my appreciation for being allowed the opportunity to serve our membership over the past two years. It has been a challenging, rewarding and fun experience. I want to thank our Board of Directors for their dedication to supporting and furthering the practice of Physical Therapy in Oklahoma. Special thanks to Peggy Newman, Lynn Jeffries and Jeff Jankowski, former Chapter Presidents that have been role models, advisors and who I am proud to call friends. Thanks also to Laura Brookins-Fleet, Executive Director, who has kept me on track for the last six years through two terms as 1st VP prior to this term as President. As a big-picture person, her attention to detail has been greatly needed and appreciated.
At the recent APTA Annual Conference in Charlotte, NC I had the honor to accept the APTA Outstanding Chapter Award on your behalf. I wanted to point out some of the accomplishments of our Chapter that led to us being chosen for the award. Please see attached for details.
Debbie Christian, PT, DPT
President, Oklahoma Physical Therapy Association
