CRT Awareness Week

What is CRT Awareness Week?

National CRT Awareness Week is August 15-19, 2022. These five days are when the Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) community joins forces to collectively share the CRT message. 

No matter what role CRT plays in your life, anyone can be an advocate and there are many different ways to get involved. Scroll below for some ideas to help you brainstorm or simply follow NCART on FacebookLinked In, and Twitter to "love" and share our posts. However you decide to get involved, be sure to use #CRTAwareness with your post so we can see it and celebrate with you too.

We're looking forward to hearing and seeing the great ways people share information about CRT during this week. It is the consistent efforts of many advocates uniting together that create meaningful and lasting changes that will protect access to this unique and important technology. Thank you for finding ONE DAY and ONE WAY to be an active advocate for Complex Rehab Technology this week!
