#AAPMR20 is Going Virtual and We Want to See You There!

Each year, AAPM&R brings the physiatric community together at the Annual Assembly. As the premier physiatry-focused event, our members and other attendees connect, learn, and expand their professional expertise. However, it has become clear that we would not be able to have a gathering of thousands of attendees in San Diego this year.

AA-Images-13We’re thrilled to announce that we’re bringing the energy, spirit, and collaboration of a face-to-face gathering to the virtual event of the year! We’re transforming #AAPMR20 into a world-class, digital event jam-packed with the top-notch education that you’ve come to expect from the Academy—from your home, office, institution—or couch (we won’t judge 😊)!

A virtual Assembly allows us to offer an event that doesn’t pose a risk to personal or public health and ensures that everyone can attend regardless of personal, travel, or financial restrictions. We’ll also be offering a significant registration discount to help our members deal with the unique circumstances they’re facing this year.

Team Physiatry’s Game Plan—Connect, Learn, and Grow Together. Join Us!

Join Team Physiatry from November 8-15, as we meet online to share best practices, reflect on lessons learned, continue supporting each other as we navigate a “new normal”—and most importantly, have fun as a specialty! We can’t wait to feel the energy, spirit, and PM&R pride you’ll bring to #AAPMR20.
