2016 Report to Membership
The following Report to Membership features detailed information about the Academy's work over the past year on behalf of its members, and highlights plans for 2017. Have you ever wondered: “What do my AAPM&R dues support?” Read this report.
Several initiatives launched this year requiring a multi-year strategy, support, and member expertise. None would be successful without your engagement. Your support of the Academy means that together, we can continue to play an instrumental role in advocating on behalf of the specialty and the patients we serve. In the world of physical medicine and rehabilitation, no one else is going to prioritize the needs of all physiatrists and the entire specialty, as the Academy can. However, the unity and support of our entire specialty is key to our success.
2016 brought new opportunities and challenges for our specialty. The same will hold true for 2017. We hope you agree that the work of the Academy is proactive in protecting and advancing the specialty of physiatry. And, we hope you get involved. While the physiatric models of medicine are extremely diverse, they are unified in their overall goals for the patients we serve. We need the engagement and perspectives of as many physiatrists as possible.
It is a pleasure serving the Academy, and we look forward to continuing to work with the Academy in the years ahead to advance our specialty.
