ACRM communities 040114

 

A primary driving force advancing the mission of ACRM is the dedicated volunteers working within ACRM committees and groups. Each interdisciplinary special interest and networking group is a unique community where like-minded, yet specialized health care and research colleagues network and collaborate to improve the lives of individuals living with disabling conditions.

Independently, they pursue their choice of projects and product development initiatives relative to their interests and expertise. Collectively they share a commitment to support the advancement of evidence-based practice, public funding of rehabilitation research, promotion of high-standards of rehabilitative care and favorable legislation and public policy.

Most special interest and networking groups are comprised of task forces focused on specific topics or projects. You may join any existing task force or propose and lead the development of a brand new one. Use the left navigation menu to learn more.

There is no better place to be part of a diverse community of your peers and be recognized for your contributions to rehabilitation medicine. All members are encouraged to join and participate in the groups and task forces committed to the issues they care about most. Contact the appropriate chair to get started.
