According to Chantal Oicles, President of Reminder Services:

“ has been providing patient reminders to physical therapists since 1998. Over the years we’ve come to realize that the physical therapy field is often overlooked by scholarship grantors. We’re excited to help aspiring PTs fund their education. It’s our way of thanking the physical therapy community for welcoming us with open arms.”
