Special to The Times-Tribune

Connie Hauser, CEO of Corbin-based PT Pros, has been elected treasurer of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).

PT Pros has clinics in Barbourville, Corbin, Harlan, Hazard, Hindman, London, Middlesboro, Somerset and Williamsburg. There is also a PT Pros clinic in Morganton, N.C. 

In mid-June, APTA’s House of Delegates convened in San Antonio, Texas, to elect new officers, directors and members of the nominating committee. The national organization represents physical therapists, physical therapist assistants and students across the nation. APTA’s goal is to foster advancements in physical therapist education, practice and research.

R Scott Ward, APTA’s president, said that Hauser and other elected positions “bring a wealth of experience to the profession and association.”

Hauser has over 25 years of experience in practice ownership and management. She has been active with APTA since 1974 and has served in multiple leadership positions within the organization. Hauser has also been named to the University of Kentucky Alumni Hall of Fame, received the Kentucky Physical Therapy Association Outstanding Physical Therapist Award, and was named East Tennessee State University’s 2007 Outstanding Alumni of the Year. She is a recipient of APTA’s Robert G. Dicus Award, honoring those whose personal, professional and community contributions are of an extraordinary nature. The award is presented to only one person in the nation each year by APTA’s private practice section.

“I’m eager to serve APTA and its members as treasurer,” said Hauser. “But I’m also excited about representing southeastern Kentucky on a national level.”

Hauser is the first woman in over 30 years to be elected to the treasurer’s position.

Physical therapists are health care professionals who diagnose and manage individuals of all ages who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. Physical therapists also work with individuals to prevent loss of mobility by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.

PT Pros’ Corbin clinic is located at 383 Corbin Center Drive. For more information about PT Pros, visit www.ptpros.net.
