Run for Rehab Research!

Members & Publications


July 17, 2017

The Foundation for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and the Americans with Disabilities Fund will be holding a Rehab 5K Run/Walk & Roll fundraising and fitness event on Friday, October 13, 2017, in conjunction with the AAPM&R Annual Assembly in Denver, CO. Proceeds from this event will be used to support the mission of the Foundation through programs like our New Investigator Research Grants, funding the next generation of physiatric researchers. 

New this year: A challenge is being issued to all residency programs to see who can beat the rest in fundraising and participation. Details will follow on the Foundation for PM&R Facebook page.

You can sign up for the Rehab 5k event when you register for the AAPM&R Annual Assembly. For questions about the residents challenge, please email or call Phyllis Anderson, Executive Director, at or (847) 737-6062.

We look forward to seeing you in Denver!

Legislation Introduced to Alleviate Impact of Conversion Factor Cut for 2021

Nov 09, 2020

Last month, two bills were introduced in the House proposing solutions to the estimated 10.6% Physician Fee Schedule conversion factor cut expected to go into effect January 1, 2021.  The bills offer some relief to the cut, but do not reflect a comprehensive or long-term solution.  AAPM&R has therefore chosen to remain neutral regarding these bills. 

Your Academy continues to advocate for a permanent solution to the conversion factor cut while maintaining the important payment increases to office and outpatient evaluation and management services.
