Accessibility at the Annual Assembly
AAPM&R has collaborated with a consultant specializing in architectural design from the San Antonio area. This representative joined Academy staff on a site visit to ensure that the 2019 Annual Assembly facilities are accessible to all participants. This thorough assessment was documented in a detailed site survey and made available here.
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 on the registration form. 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 Annual Assembly are encouraged to order the equipment in advance.
