"This amendment provides valuable incentives to enter the profession of physical Debt_2 therapy and help meet the high demand for physical therapists that exists across the nation," said American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) President R Scott Ward, PT, PhD.

Offering forgiveness will help enhance physical therapy availability for children, adolescents and veterans, and provide lasting health benefits in these areas."
