Accessibility at the Annual Assembly
In preparation for the 2017 Annual Assembly, the Academy collaborated with a Universal Design and Accessibility Specialist from the Denver area. This representative joined Academy staff on a site visit to ensure that the 2017 Annual Assembly facilities are accessible to all participants. This thorough assessment was documented in a detailed site survey and is available for review.
AAPM&R conferences are ADA compliant. We strive to take the appropriate steps required to ensure that no individual with a disability is excluded, denied services, segregated or otherwise treated differently. Individuals requiring special assistance must contact AAPM&R for further information and make the appropriate notation during registration. All requests for special accommodations under ADA must be made allowing enough time for evaluation and appropriate action by AAPM&R.
Medical Equipment Requests
Attendees and guests who require special medical equipment during the course of the Annual Assembly are encouraged to order the equipment in advance. Scootaround is the preferred vendor of AAPM&R and recommends making arrangements for equipment 1-2 weeks prior to your arrival in Denver. Scooter and wheelchair rentals are available by contacting Scootaround at their toll-free hotline at (888) 441-7575.
