Legislative Update

This law adds occu­pa­tion­al ther­a­pists to the list of approved health care pro­fes­sion­als that can diag­nose and treat con­cus­sions for high school ath­letes that occur dur­ing inter­scholas­tic activ­i­ties. This bill passed the Sen­ate unan­i­mous­ly and the House on a 91 – 2 vote.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to all ther­a­pists who helped leg­isla­tive­ly pass this law! Great victory!!

We are still work­ing on the Iowa Com­pact leg­is­la­tion, so please keep watch­ing your email as we may need your input in the future.
