HAPTA member and volunteer leader Justin Ledbetter, PT, DPT, received an APTA Emerging Leader Award for 2017. Justin serves as the secretary on the HAPTA Board of Directors and is an active member of the Legislative Committee.
Each component may nominate one of their members who has been active, a member for at least five years and graduated from their PT program less than 10 years earlier. In his nomination letter for Justin, HAPTA President Gregg Pacilio described him as a “significant powerhouse.”
Justin took the lead in organizing HAPTA’s Legislative Day at the Capitol on March 12, 2018 and organizes pub nights, and has been an alternate delegate to the APTA House of Delegates since 2016.
