National Rehabilitation Awareness Week

National Rehabilitation Awareness Week:
Celebrate the Power of Medical Rehab

In recognition of the benefits of rehabilitation and the successes of those who have received treatment through all forms rehabilitation, the National Rehabilitation Awareness Foundation (NRAF) recognizes National Rehabilitation Awareness Week during the third full week in September every year. This year, National Rehabilitation Awareness Week is September 21-27.

As part of the week, NRAF aims to:

  • educate people about the benefits and impact of rehabilitation,
  • develop programs which aim to increase opportunities for the nearly fifty million Americans with disabilities
  • and help those who are disabled live up to their fullest potential.

AMRPA looks forward to celebrating National Rehabilitation Awareness Week with daily activities on its social media channels (Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn).

This year, we will focus on raising awareness of the #powerofmedicalrehab, providing information on inpatient medical rehabilitation patient outcomes, disseminating useful resources and reviewing patient journeys to recovery, culminating in the release of a new Patient Success Story at the end of the week.

We encourage you to take part in the celebration with us by sharing this graphic on your organization’s social media channels and adding your logo in the provided space.
