We have a human rights crisis in our country, and I want to make it clear where ThriveAgain Physical Therapy & Wellness stands. Black Lives Matter. We unequivocally condemn the systemic racism which is ravishing our country. We unequivocally condemn the horrific police violence against Black men and women. We are horrified that active duty military are on our streets to “dominate” and intimidate the thousands of peaceful protesters who are exercising their constitutional rights.
I am absolutely committed to providing a safe place for healing that is free from discrimination against not only race, but also ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender identity and sexual orientation. To my Black clients and team members: I stand beside you. I am committed to making ThriveAgain Physical Therapy & Wellness part of the solution. I already have a commitment to diversity of hiring, but I recognize that there is much more to do. Racial inequality is present throughout every institution in this country, including the healthcare system. My staff and I have completed trainings on anti-racism, including a training on anti-racist and trauma-informed patient care co-taught by ThriveAgain’s own Dr. Lauren Collins, PT, DPT, CLT. We are currently exploring additional ways to have an impact, at a person-to-person level, community level, and national level.
I continue to ask you all for support and commitment to maintaining a safe, nurturing, and empowering environment for everyone.
Dr. Jessica Probst, PT, DPT, MTC, PRPC
