Welcome Dr Rafael Zambelli!

We want to take this opportunity to thank the outstanding work of Dr. Leonardo Costa during the period (2015 – 2019) that he served as Editor-in-Chief for the Brazilian Journal of Physical Therapy (BJPT).

Dr. Costa brought new advances to BJPT and was essential for its growth in recent years. During this period, he voluntarily devoted countless hours of work to the journal, and his competence and dedication drove the BJPT to a new level.

Similarly, we want to welcome and thank Dr. Rafael Zambelli for accepting the invitation to join the Editors-in-Chief of the Journal and making himself available to continue the work of several researchers who have built this patrimony of the Brazilian Physical Therapy that is the BJPT.  

We are sure that the flame carried by those who have contributed to the BJPT's growth will again be in good hands.
