DPTA Annual Conference & Chapter Meeting


“Time to Engage!”

Saturday December 14, 2019

Location: STAR Campus, University of Delaware, 540 South College Avenue, Newark DE

This year, DPTA is trying something different. Using the theme “Time to Engage”, we have designed this half-day meeting to be both educational and engaging. Four topics have been selected that impact or has the potential to impact all PTs, PTAs and students: Telehealth, Population Health, Entrepreneurship, and Social Media. Experts have been invited to speak and will present on these topics virtually. Following the four presentations, roundtable discussions will be facilitated by a DPTA member. Attendees will be able to participate in 2 of the 4 roundtables. It is our hope that these roundtables will stimulate ideas and potentially generate some action steps for those inspired to do so.
