AACPDM 65th Annual Meeting
555 East Wells, Suite 1100
Milwaukee, WI 53202
On behalf of the American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM), we invite you to join us at the 65th Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada, October 12-15, 2011. This year's meeting will provide participants with the opportunity for scientific education, clinical practice enhancement, professional collaboration, and fun in the sun and bright lights of Vegas.
The theme of the meeting, Accepting the Challenge, applies to each of us as we work to better serve our patients and their families, and to the academy as a whole. All who work in our field know that we must continue to broaden our knowledge and hone our skills in teamwork with our multidisciplinary colleagues. Likewise, our academy has recently accepted the challenges of advocacy, encouraging expanded research opportunities, and changing our focus to include those of any age with childhood onset disabilities. These are lofty goals but not outside the reach of our members if we work in concert with one another.
The Scientific Program will include interdisciplinary Plenary Sessions, Free Paper Sessions, and Instructional Courses. The Poster session will include over 100 Scientific and Demonstration Posters, in both traditional paper poster format and in electronic format as E-Posters. We will also feature the popular Breakfast with the Experts sessions including informal, clinical based, "personal practice" sessions with recognized experts discussing their, and your, difficult cases.
This year's meeting is located in Las Vegas, the home to the beautiful desert sun and many of the finest entertainment venues in the world. The Rio All-Suites Hotel will ensure that all participants and their accompanying guests will enjoy the setting in addition to the academic program. With the benefits of the sessions and the affordability of Las Vegas, this promises to be one of the Academy's best meetings yet.
Please mark your calendar and join us in October in Las Vegas to learn, share, and have fun at the 65th Annual Meeting of our Academy.
