We are very excited about the conference program. There are many enhancements reflecting the incredible work of ACRM members as we celebrate one hundred years of improving lives and supporting the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation. Our centennial conference is the one you will not want to miss!
The CORE conference will take place at the Hilton Anatole in DALLAS, Texas, USA from 31 October – 3 November 2024, preceded by two full days of PRE-CONFERENCE instructional courses and ACRM development and brain injury courses held 29 – 31 October.
I encourage you to join me and rehabilitation professionals and community members from around the globe in the diverse and exciting city of Dallas for #ACRM2024, the world’s largest interdisciplinary rehabilitation research event.
There’s something extraordinary about meeting in-person, face-to-face. Great minds coming together in one space fuels creative energy, promotes innovation and sparks collaboration — the kind of collaboration needed to help bring the latest science into practice — faster.
ACRM’s inclusivity has always been all about the research and the mix of disciplines and professions. This blend is exclusive to ACRM and is one of the critical ways that — all together — our work improves lives of those with disabling conditions through interdisciplinary research.
To improve patient care, we need the science from the researchers. To inform and improve the research, we need feedback from the clinicians. ACRM is at the intersection of this essential feedback loop, and this is where you come in. YOU are needed to join the discussions and collaborations — to help move the field forward.
Your expertise is very important. With 150+ inter-professional groups at ACRM, including community groups, committees and task forces, we know there are ample opportunities for networking and collaborating to achieve your goals.
ACRM IS PLANNING FOR
There will be no shortage of opportunities for networking and fun — a hallmark of ACRM Conferences.
ACRM would not be the organization it is without its members.
RECOGNITION TO ACRM PARTNERS
None of this would be possible without the fantastic work of the ACRM Program Committee, led by Anne Deutsch, PhD, FACRM and Brooks Wingo, PhD and the outstanding work from hundreds of presenters and staff.
This event is made financially possible due in part to the support of our sponsors, exhibitors, advertisers, and Institutional Supporters. Please visit them in the Online Program (ACRM.org/op), in the conference App (ACRM.org/app), and in-person in Dallas.
No matter where you are or who you are; no matter where you work, no matter your job status, career stage, educational background, work experience, race, nationality, geographic location, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, immigration and/or disability status, personality, or your religious or political identity — you can rest assured that you are always welcome at ACRM.
At ACRM, our mission is to improve the lives of those with disabling conditions through interdisciplinary research. While our backgrounds and professional interests are broad and our clinical, educational, scholarship and scientific research talents are many, our best work happens when we collaborate together as diverse teams to curate and disseminate rehabilitation research throughout the WORLD!
