WELCOME HOME to ACRM
Our work has never mattered more than it does right now.
During these rapidly changing times, our goal at ACRM remains your professional home and source of inter-professional inspiration, education, community, and networking.
ACRM has made all of this easier than ever. The 98th Annual ACRM Conference will be held VIRTUALLY 24 – 29 September 2021 with a robust program. From the comfort and convenience of your home or office, participate in the world’s largest interdisciplinary rehabilitation research event.
ADVANTAGES of ACRM VIRTUAL
At ACRM, we are about the research, with the goal of bringing that research — the very best and latest science into practice — faster. The best way to do that is by coming together and gathering around the research at the ACRM Annual Conference.
We are honored to have presenters of the highest caliber at ACRM. The four major Plenary Sessions anchor each day of the Core Conference. And this year, these will be live-streamed: Plenary I: Kerri Morgan, Plenary II: Claire Kalpakjian, Plenary III: Sylk Sotto, Plenary IV and ACRM Coulter Award winner: Claudia H. Kawas (see page 10).
MORE THIS YEAR
ACRM is always improving. And this year, we are excited about having more networking capabilities — including a new “Matchmaking” feature built into the platform. Also on tap, there will be MORE opportunities for LIVE interaction with presenters, MORE ways to connect with each other, earlier access to pre-recorded content and even MORE Closed-captioning features.
- MORE networking capabilities with “Matchmaking” feature
- MORE opportunities for LIVE interaction with presenters
- MORE ways to connect with attendees
- Earlier access to pre-recorded content
- Closed-captioning feature
- Fun surprises
None of this would be possible without the fantastic work of the ACRM Program Committee led by Megan Mitchell and Jeanne Zanca and the outstanding work from hundreds of presenters.
This event is made financially possible due to the support of our sponsors, exhibitors, advertisers and Institutional Supporters (back cover). Please visit them in the Online Program (ACRM.org/op).
YOU MATTER at ACRM
No matter where you are or who you are; no matter where you work, no matter your job status, career level, race, nationality, geography, ethnicity, age, nor your political affiliation — you can rest assured that you are welcome and WANTED at ACRM.
To this point, the ACRM Diversity, Equity & Inclusion has done an amazing job and their efforts will be seen at the Conference.
If you haven’t already, please register now to secure your spot. The 6-Day WORLD PASS is the best value if you’d like to attend a Pre-Conference course — especially the highly-regarded Early Career or Leadership Development Course.
We look forward to seeing you virtually in September
