This is YOUR Future

Through Visioning PM&R BOLD, the input of thousands of physiatrists created a new vision statement for PM&R. The Academy adopted the vision as its own in 2017 and has engaged the specialty in critical conversations and actions to move the specialty forward. The rapid changes in health care this year, driven by the COVID-19 pandemic, have reaffirmed our collective vision that it is necessary for physiatrists to be involved early and throughout the continuum of patient care.

Prioritize Your Future

This year at #AAPMR20, we’ve worked to highlight sessions across the Assembly experience that support YOUR future and the future of PM&R in alignment with that vision. Look for the PM&R BOLD mark next to session titles throughout the agenda and prioritize your future at this year’s virtual Assembly.
