Annual Orthopaedic Section Meeting
Our 3rd Annual Orthopaedic Section Meeting will be held at the beautiful Arizona Grand Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Arizona, May 14-16, 2015. During this 2-day meeting, we will explore the multidiscipline advances in rehabilitation through the episode of care of various lower extremity dysfunctions, treatment of osteoarthritis from presurgical to postsurgical, and the physical therapist’s role in advances in regenerative medicine. Experts in the field will gather together for lecture presentations and small group, hands-on lab sessions. Our goal is to describe the current research in clinical practice. We want to create a meeting where we can interact, learn, and challenge each other as colleagues. We are listening to your suggestions, and will continue to strive to meet your educational needs as an advanced practicing clinician.
So please, plan to join us in Phoenix, Arizona, on May 14-16, 2015, for our third Annual Orthopaedic Section Meeting on “Maximizing Outcomes: Multidisciplinary Advances in the Continuum of Care of Lower Extremity Dysfunctions” at the beautiful Arizona Grand Hotel & Spa.
