Baudry Therapy Center Pledges to Support the Community in Global PT Day of Service
Baudry Therapy Center will join members of the physical therapy profession for a worldwide effort to give back to the community on October 15, 2016. Designated as PT Day of Service (PTDOS), this one-day event celebrates physical therapists’ dedication to bettering our communities and impacting change.
Baudry Therapy Center | BRIO has chosen to support and serve the Louisiana Walks for Parkinson’s organization for PTDOS. On Saturday, Oct. 15, the Baudry team will participate in the race at Lafreniere Park. They will be on-hand to assist with any physical therapy needs for Parkinson patients or race participants. In addition, they will help cook and serve jambalaya after the race.
“One of the most rewarding parts of our job is working with our Parkinson’s patients. Living with Parkinson’s is challenging, so helping restore their movement and function truly brings joy to our lives. This event is the perfect way to show appreciation for our patients and gratitude to their families who are their biggest support system,” said Richard Baudry, Owner, Baudry Therapy Center | BRIO.
Celebrating its second year, PTDOS is a chance to show the world how PTs can come together and ignite change. Each act individually may seem small. But collectively, the profession can set in a motion a mindset of helping each other thrive in the best environment possible.
Physical therapists in more than 38 countries have pledged to participate in PT Day of Service to promote servant leadership across the globe.
