Global PT Day-of-Service, October 17, 2015

Efosa L. Guobadia PT, DPT, who is behind the Inaugural Global Initiative "The Global PT Day of Service", which is October 17, 2015 joins eHealth Radio and the Health News, Pain Management & Physical Therapy Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Efosa L. Guobadia discuss the following:

  • Where did the idea for the initiative come from?
  • How do you hope the day turns out?
  • What do you hope the overall impact is on the communities and those that serve?
  • What has been your favorite part about the planning for the initiative?
  • What can the listeners do to support or tune in?


Duration: 8:48


In, perhaps, one of the most ambitious and altruistic efforts ever spearheaded by the Physical Therapist community, the Inaugural Global PT Day-Of-Service has been announced for Saturday, October 17, 2015.


Conceptualized by Efosa L. Guobadia, DPT and executed with the help of friend and fellow PT Josh D'Angelo, DPT, this innovative initiative is mobilizing clinicians, students and associated staff of the Physical Therapy profession to volunteer in different communities around the world on the same day.


The unique element about the Global PT Day-Of-Service is that participants aren’t limited to donating their time, experience and passion to just PT volunteerism. They are encouraged to donate their service to anything in their community that needs help. Whether it’s working in a soup kitchen, cleaning up a park or assisting a local non-profit, the overall mission of the Global PT Day-Of-Service is that the PT profession as a whole unites on all fronts for the highest purpose … helping others.


What was once an idea has evolved into a real, palpable movement driven by ten volunteers, a growing list of international ambassadors, and many supporters across the world.


In fact, to date, PTs in every U.S. state have committed to the cause by serving as an ambassador. What’s even more impressive is that each state has more than one PT participating, with some boasting as many as a dozen ambassadors.


Internationally, the list of ambassadors continues to grow with participants in 23 countries and nearly 40 sponsors.


“Our hope for this day is that it sparks new connections, strengthens established ones, and further stimulates conversations on how we can keep this river flowing strongly for our profession and the communities we touch,” said Guobadia.


For those looking to get involved with the Global PT Day-Of-Service, the process is simple. Just visit www.ptdayofservice.com. There, visitors will have the ability to pledge to participate, sponsor, or donate to the initiative and learn how to spread the word about the project’s mission.
