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 over 90 Institutions across the United States with 2 Regional Conferences, one in the western and one in the eastern part of the country.

Our conferences are held once a year.  In 2018, we had more than 160 participants attend the Eastern Conference and more than 60 participants attend the Western Conference.

The National Honor Society includes more than 205 student members!  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.
