About the Conference


Welcome to the KPTA 2019 Annual Conference. Our vision for this conference is "Fueling the Evolution of Physical Therapy Practice in Kentucky." With this goal in mind, you'll find a diverse selection of courses and events with a special emphasis on emerging opportunities in physical therapy practice. We hope you will be intentional about developing strategic relationships at one of the many networking opportunities throughout the weekend.


There is a potential to earn up to EIGHT continuing education hours (category 1 for Kentucky) by attending the full conference. Take advantage of the bargain deal of $22 per CEU hour with early bird registration for PT members ($18 per hour for PTA members). Registration pricing also includes Friday evening appetizers along with lunch and beverages on Saturday.

I'd like to highlight some programming events that I know you will enjoy:

  • Research Forum - Posters/Platforms
  • Opening Reception (Includes Exhibits & PAC Auction & Raffle)
  • SIG Meetings
  • Forum: The Increasing Relevance and Growth in Tele-Physical Therapy in Kentucky
  • KPTA Business Meeting & Awards to Honor Exemplary Members

I hope that you will consider attending the KPTA 2019 Annual Conference. A HUGE thank you is extended to the Education Program Committee members for their hard work in establishing a strong and diverse educational program.
