 We are on a mission to change things -- to create, develop, and deliver a fundamentally different way to care.

In 2015, the Academy of Prevention & Health Promotion Therapies (APHPT) was formally launched as the professional division of BaseCamp 31. Structured as a professional community cooperative, members network, explore and innovate, develop usable products, and mobilize the people and resources needed to change the trajectory of health and well-being in our society.

It's no secret, healthcare in its current state, is not reaching its full potential. There is a better way, but to get there, we must work together. The Academy of Prevention & Health Promotion Therapies (APHPT) of BaseCamp was founded as an open-source, interdisciplinary collaborative where health-facing professionals connect with others who are ready to roll up their sleeves to develop a fundamentally different way to care.


APHPT Chair, Board Liaison

Perry Brubaker

Perry Brubaker is a physical therapist in the metro Atlanta area and has a prevention and health promotion consulting practice. She also runs operations for the professional community arm of BaseCamp 31, the Academy of Prevention and Health Promotion Therapies. 

Perry adores her husband and is completely awestruck by her daughter. She measures health more from a well-being lens these days so you may see her walking instead of running, laughing instead of lecturing, and kissing her husband in public to totally embarrass her teenage daughter. 



Aaron Perez

Clinically trained as a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Aaron graduated in 2015 from Saint Louis University. He then pursued his passion for fitness and health receiving advanced training and certifications in personal training, sport physical therapy, and prevention and health promotion.  Currently he serves as lead Prevention & Health Promotion therapist ate a Fortune 100 manufacturing company. When he's not "in the trenches", he can be found working out and probably dancing and rapping to his favorite hip hop songs.
