Education Committee Report

By Jason Sanders, PT, DPT, OCS, GCS

When Private Practice Section (PPS) members are surveyed, the number one reason for membership is their desire for education. Arenas for education within our section include public relations, marketing, finance, government affairs, technology, and payment policy, just to name a few. It is with this in mind that the PPS Board develops its strategic plan and tasks its volunteer-based committees with meeting the needs of the organization and its membership. The portions of the strategic plan tasked to the Education Committee span several realms important to the PPS membership and require both independent development of projects within our committee as well as collaboration across committees.

Give Them a Reason

By Tannus Quatre, PT, MBA

We need to make sense of our lives.

This applies to all the lofty “I have a purpose” and “my search for meaning” kind of things, but it also applies to the mundane. The daily. The actions we take at each turn of our lives.

And it especially applies when we buy.

Hit the Reset Button

By Tannus Quatre, PT, MBA

I’ve got a quiz for you.

Your cell phone (or computer) just went wonky. You didn’t drop it in a puddle or run it over with your car. It’s just not quite working as it usually does, and it’s really beginning to frustrate you. What’s the first action you take?

If you’ve had any experience with small electronics, you’ll know that it usually doesn’t pay to hire an electrical engineer or computer technician to fix each issue that comes your way. At least not to start with.
