Connecting with the community is an essential part of marketing for any physical therapy practice — it means meeting your community where their needs are, building relationships, and bringing value to people beyond the walls of your clinic. Brian Hay, PT, DPT, Marketing Committee member and communications officer at Performance Physical Therapy, recently presented a webinar, “How to Get the Most Out of Your Community Events,” aimed at helping PPS members engage with potential clients and patients by making an impression in the community.
