Visioning Engagement

Thanks to those who Joined PM&R Bold! 

As part of the Visioning PM&R Bold initiative, AAPM&R hosted several in-person events, focus groups and virtual town halls across the country. Thank you to all the physiatrists who participated to help shape the future of PM&R!

Virtual Town Halls

Physiatrists talked PM&R Bold with their peers to envision the future of PM&R. These webinar-style town halls were held throughout the summer and fall of 2016. Hosted by professional researchers and AAPM&R leadership, participants had a chance to share ideas, hear others' challenges, and provide actionable solutions.
