Community Commitment

Here at Physical Therapy Associates, we are dedicated to making the local communities better. We are involved in several community organizations such as Business Professionals Organizations and Local Rotary groups.

St. Vincent DePaul Society: Thanksgiving Volunteer Event

Staff members from our Scotia, Schenectady,and Rotterdam offices spent the day with various church organizations boxing up Thanksgiving Dinner boxes for those in need. This event was a collaborative effort by many local churches to serve their respective communities.

Thank you to Kris Kerber, Kathy Hamilton, and Kevin McLaughlin for going that extra mile to help others enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner.

LAXin 4 Life Benefit Games Event - Burnt Hills High School

On April 20, 2013, the Burnt Hills Ballston Lake and Scotia Glenville Girls Lacrosse teams joined forces to raise funds for 2 charities - the Headstrong Foundation and the Stephen T. Marchello Scholarship Foundation. Physical Therapists from our Scotia Office participated in the event and provided free screenings for the athletes. They assessed their risk for ACL (Anterior Crucitate Ligament) injury and instructed them in exercises. A big THANK YOU for our therapists Teresa Lemery, Krystal Clarke, Lora Larsen, Ann Dawdy, Alex Chlopecki, and Cindy LeBel.
