2015 is shaping up to be a critical year for making incremental progress on a host of legislative initiatives facing the therapy community.

Indianapolis is home to the Indy 500, which many consider to be the world’s most famous race, although I am sure that there are more than a few people in our Daytona office that would quibble with that designation. Indiana is a state know for its basketball, so a couple of our recruiters were excited to learn that Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers would be in town to play the Indiana Pacers Friday night.
