Erik for AASPT President-Elect

I am currently running for the American Academy of Sports Physical Therapy position of President-Elect.

The video goes into much greater detail, but here are some highlights.

Over 15 years working my way up through various service positions in the Academy including:

  • Committee Member
  • Committee Lead
  • Special Interest Group (SIG) Founder

I plan to do this by:
