The Graham Sessions 2021 Virtual Series
Presented by the Institute of Private Practice Physical Therapy

The annual Graham Sessions is the premier opportunity for physical therapy professionals to engage in open, often spirited dialog on issues affecting the industry of physical therapy. Due to COVID-19, the Private Practice Section of the APTA and the Institute of Private Practice Physical Therapy has decided that we are unable to have an in-person Graham Sessions this year; however, we are pleased to introduce The Graham Sessions 2021 Virtual Series!

The planning committee has been working hard to deliver an innovative and inclusive virtual experience for 2021 while avoiding overloading your schedule or adding to your Zoom fatigue. Each month will feature new content available for participants to watch at their leisure until the following month's program is posted. Content will include the popular and compelling "What I Believe" Speeches shared by our industry's biggest thought leaders and the critical (and potentially contentious) Hot-Topic Panel Discussions, providing deep insight into the most important evolutions for the future of the PT profession.

Although we will miss the in-person participation that has made The Graham Sessions the not to miss conference of the year, we have an exciting opportunity to provide quality programming and expand the Graham Sessions experience's reach. We look forward to seeing everyone face-to-face at The Graham Sessions in 2022, and in the meantime, we hope you will join us for The Graham Sessions 2021 Virtual Series.
