The transformation of PTA from a place of rehabilitation to a space of Wellness; where rehabilitation is interwoven into the fabric of The Principles of Healthy Living. This concept brings information to the community, and by extension Trinidad & Tobago, that there is a place where chronic diseases are addressed in such a way that they can be prevented and/or treated; and the knowledge that increased activity with age is attainable.
