3-Point Products — Julie Belkin

Never stop asking questions. Never be satisfied that what you are doing is good enough. Share your knowledge and search for a better way. Prove why what you are doing works or does not work. For me, American Hand Therapy Foundation (AHTF) exists to make it possible for therapists to ask the questions by supporting and funding research to find the answers.

Once a therapist, always a therapist, and as the founder and president of 3-Point Products, I am proud to support and help fund the mission and vision of AHTF. Kudos to all those who ask the questions and do the hard work of finding the answers.
