Become a Member
The 97th Virtual ACRM Annual Conference, Progress in Rehabilitation Research, is comprised of the main CORE Conference and the Pre-Conference delivering a total of SIX jam-packed days of evidence-based educational content for the whole rehab team, those with disabilities and caregivers.
"In many ways, virtual conferences can offer a better attendee experience. ACRM already has incredible scientific programming and now this content will be more accessible than ever at the ACRM 97th Annual Conference. No longer limited to those who are able to travel to the U.S. venue, now anyone — from anywhere with an internet connection — will be able to access and participate. This work — the research, the collaboration — is absolutely critical to the world. ACRM is working to make an incredible virtual event with a new high-end platform. You don’t want to miss it." -Pamela Roberts, PhD, OTR/L, SCFES, FAOTA, CPHQ, FNAP, FACRM
