Dear colleagues and friends,
The practice of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine entails the rhythmic restoration of body and mind, creating a beat of oneness between the Physiatrist and the Person With Disability, enabling eventual participation and inclusion in the community.
This is REHAB RHYTHMS, the Joint Congress of the 5th Asia-Oceanian Conference of Physical & Rehabilitation Medicine (AOCPRM) and the 26th Annual Convention of the Philippine Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine (PARM). With the theme “Globalization of Evidence and Localization of Application in Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine”, this Joint Congress showcases the latest advancement in PRM and its regional implementation, with emphasis on Performing Arts Rehab, Aquatic Rehab, NeuroRehabilitation of Movement Disorders, Sports Conditioning Rehab, Rehabilitation Disaster Relief and Robotics.
RHYTHMS are likewise seen in Cebu, the Queen City of Southern Philippines, the alluring venue of this Joint Congress. The melodic strings of the guitar… the precise pirouettes of the ballerina… the enticing steps of the Sinulog fiesta… and the inviting waves over white sandy shores…all these in Cebu.
May I therefore invite you to join REHAB RHYTHMS on February 18-22, 2016, as we form bridges of camaraderie and exchange among the PRM Specialists of the Asia-Oceanian region.
Kita-kita ta sa Sugbu! (See you in Cebu!)
