2021 Graham Sessions

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.

Due to COVID-19, the Private Practice Section of the APTA has decided that we are unable to have an in-person Graham Sessions this year. But don’t worry!


  • Friday, April 16: What I Believe Speech
  • Friday, May 21: What I Believe Speech and Hot-Topic Panel Discussion
  • Friday, June 18: What I Believe Speech
  • Friday, July 16: What I Believe Speech and Hot-Topic Panel Discussion
  • Friday, August 20: What I Believe Speech
  • Friday, September 17: What I Believe Speech and Hot-Topic Panel Discussion

Speakers and panel information is forthcoming.

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 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 given by our industry’s biggest thought leaders and 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 reach of The Graham Sessions experience. 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 2021 Graham Sessions Virtual Series.
