OOPTSG (Oregon Orthopedic Physical Therapy Study Group) has been a part of the NAIOMT landscape in Portland Oregon for almost two decades now. Almost anyone who has taught for NAIOMT in Portland, or taken a course from NAIOMT in Portland has come across OOPTSG and of course Anna Bond. Whether it was the Phoenix Inn, the facility on Tillamook, Cedar Creek, Pacific University or IMPACT, Anna has set the standard for running CE courses. Her organization, her attention to detail and of course the genuine love and compassion she has for all who cross her path have defined her as the face of OOPTSG, an organization NAIOMT has been proud to associate with since the early 1990's.
Like all good things though, it has all finally come to an end. OOPTSG recently decided to disband the organization and with it goes the site coordination with NAIOMT. It's very sad, but a testament to change I guess. The last NAIOMT-OOPTSG course will be held in Portland on the weekend of November 15-16, and then we are homeless :(. But...not for long. NAIOMT has signed an agreement with New Heights Physical Therapy, who are soon to move into a brand new facility on the corner of 58th & Glisan Streets in Portland. It's a beautiful new clinic -close to the airport, public transport, restaurants and accommodations. Courses will be starting there in January of 2015 and are currently open for registration!!
NAIOMT is extremely grateful for the long and successful association with OOPTSG and wishes the individuals all the best in their future endeavors. As to the future...we're excited by it. Come and check us out at the new site!!
Best regards. Brett
