🤔 How Well is PT Represented?

❓ What Can Learning From This Teach Us?

Jason Hubeny is a third year student physical therapist at the University of Hartford in Connecticut.

As a freshman in college, he became a member of the APTA. Check out his article PT Student for 2 years, an APTA Member for 4 Years to learn about his reasons why he is an #APTAmember.

Jason created a blog called RatedPT where he finds the representations of physical therapists in TV shows and movies. During the show, we break down scenes from Dumb & Dumber, Forrest Gump, and Impractical Jokers and how they present physical therapists to the audience.
