The PACER Project:  Post-Acute COVID-19 Exercise & Rehabilitation Project


The Cardiovascular & Pulmonary Section (CVP) of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) has sponsored a FREE international educational response to the pandemic: The PACER Project.


A core group of American cardiopulmonary specialists were asked by the CVP Section to make videos in their area of expertise to help PTs anticipate the needs of COVID survivors of moderate to severe disease. I am proud to be one of the invited experts.  Speed was of the essence!  The experts quickly developed lectures and began to post them on the CVP YouTube page (below) within days of the start of the PACER Project.  Sixteen lectures are planned in total; 7 original lectures are already up and running.


I posted my lecture just 1-1/2 days ago and it already has more than 800 views.  So many more PTs need to see these lectures.  Great quality!  Great lecturers.  Please forward this message. I’m so impressed by my peers and so grateful that so many experts freely participated.  Share the links with PT communities around the globe so everyone can take advantage of these FREE educational videos.  My thanks to my CVP section and the APTA for organizing this international COVID response.


The videos are FREE for all!
