NEW Pediatric Rehabilitation Webinar Series
The Pediatric Rehabilitation Networking Group is actively collaborating with the Pediatric/Adolescent TBI Task Force of the BI-ISIG to put together a webinar/podcast series dedicated to pediatric rehabilitation! We conducted four initial interviews at the Mid-Year Meeting that will be used to launch this series. If you would like to contribute as a guest, or if you have suggestions for guests you would like to hear, please email Angela Ciccia.
Inaugural Pediatric Rehabilitation Award Lecture
We are thrilled to announce that our inaugural Pediatric Rehabilitation Award Lecture will be held on Thursday, 3 November at the ACRM Annual Conference in Chicago. This year, Dr. Vogel will be our speaker. Dr. Vogel is widely recognized for his work in pediatric spinal cord injury and will speak on the topic of long-term outcomes for this population. Watch for full details coming soon! If you have suggestions for future invited lecture speakers, please email Angela Ciccia or Cristina Sadowsky.
We have also requested the ability to sponsor a pediatric rehabilitation poster award at the Annual Conference in October. This is currently under administrative consideration. Please make sure to submit you pediatric posters so that we can have a robust selection process. A call for late-breaking research will provide a second window of opportunity to submit a poster proposal later this summer. Watch your inbox for details.
