2017 Johns Hopkins PM&R Expo Recap
The first annual Johns Hopkins PM&R Expo was held on Jan. 28, 2017, and was a big success. Among the many goals of this event was to highlight the diversity and strengths of the physical medicine and rehabilitation specialty.
Organized by the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Interest Group, the event brought together over 40 medical students and trainees from all over Maryland and Washington, D.C., including the University of Maryland, Howard University, Georgetown University, George Washington University and The Johns Hopkins University.
Visitors and staff members could visit five stations that showcased multidisciplinary therapeutic modalities:
- Spinal cord injury
- Spasticity management
- Animal assistive therapy
- Laser therapy, lymphedema, kinesio taping and splints
Several attendees shared that the expo broadened their knowledge about the scope of treatments provided by the professionals in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation.
A grant from the Association of Academic Physiatrists helped support this event. The department would like to thank the interest group members, faculty members, residents, therapists, students and volunteers who helped run the event. The organizing team plans to further public awareness of physical medicine and rehabilitation, and looks forward to hosting next year’s expo.
