What: IV Step 2016
When: July 14-19, 2016
Where: The Ohio Union, Ohio State University, 1739 North High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43210
Why: “The Pediatric and Neurology Sections are planning for the IV STEP Conference, a summer institute for clinicians, educators, and researchers designed to explore new theory and research evidence related to movement science, and to translate this theory and evidence into physical therapy practice for individuals of all ages with neurologic disorders. IV STEP will foster, guide, and affect neurologic physical therapy practice over the next decade.
IV STEP will focus on four “Ps”: Prevention, Prediction, Plasticity, and Participation as they relate to the roles and responsibilities of today’s physical therapists. Personal interactions and dialogues will be an integral part of the conference. Active engagement learning experiences will assist participants in exploring, understanding, and applying these principles to their daily practice. IV STEP attendees are expected to serve as change agents for the profession.”

Hope to see you all there! Hoping I can work an extra weekend in January to come up with the funds to go! Like the bit above said, what is discussed at this conference will be a driving force in neurologic physical therapy for the next decade-ish. So if you want to be at the forefront, this is the place to be!
