AMRPA 2017 Educational Conference & Expo

The American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association (AMRPA) hosted the 15th Annual Educational Conference & Expo at the Swissotel in Chicago, IL on October 23-25, 2017. More than 420 people attended AMRPA's two-and-a-half days of educational programs to increase their productivity and facilitate better care for the patients who are served at medical rehabilitation facilities throughout the United States.

Inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and units are an integral part of the nation’s health care system. They play a crucial role in advancing the care, treatment, and recovery of individuals with disabling injuries and illnesses. The AMRPA Educational Conference & Expo focuses on cutting edge and innovative strategies to promote and achieve successful outcomes and advocacy in the interests of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and units, outpatient rehabilitation centers, and other medical rehabilitation providers. 

In addition, the AMRPA educational conference offers several unique opportunities for attendees to network and socialize. Many companies support the AMRPA educational conference through sponsorships and exhibiting, which provides attendees the opportunity to meet face-to-face with vendors and learn about new products and services that enhance the rehabilitation profession.
