The 19th Annual ACA Rehabilitation Symposium was held at the Flamingo Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The well attended event offered a number of great opportunities.
Dr. Michele Maiers (Rehab Researcher of the Year Award recipient) reviewed the best available evidence to consider for active care strategies of patients. It was an honest look at what we do for our patients and how we can embrace an evidence-informed model of care.

Dr. Steven Weininger conducted an engaging workshop implicating posture assessment and management as an integral part of the rehab professional's toolbox.
Dr. William Morgan offered his low back and disc management presentation. During which, the audience revealed interest in his neurologic exam... a teaser for 2019?

Not only were the speakers great, but the weekend was filled with social and networking opportunities for all. New innovations were explored by some of our newer sponsors [complete list of sponsors]. Students impressed at the poster presentations. And friends, old and new, ventured out to partake in some classic Vegas activities. The symposium was a huge success in no small part by our membership of world-class rehab professionals. We're excited and looking to surpass expectation at next year’s 20th annual symposium March 8-10th in Orlando FL at the Wyndham.
