To facilitate the networking of students participating in student-run pro bono clinics that are delivering rehabilitation healthcare services to the uninsured and underinsured of our communities.

The Network

The Pro Bono Network consists of 109 Institutions  with Regional and Virtual Conferences, across the United States.

In the Spring of 2020, we had 197 attendees representing 28 different programs at the Eastern conference. At our first virtual conference in the Fall, we had 375 attendees representing 60 different programs!

The National Honor Society currently includes 30 member institutions representing over 200 students!  The National Honor Society was created in 2014 as a result of the need to recognize outstanding physical therapy students who provide pro bono services as part of their education.
