On behalf of our scientific committee, I would like to welcome all of you to join us for the 62nd
Annual Scientific Meeting of the Canadian Association of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in St John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, June 18 - 21, 2014.
This is the first meeting for CAPM&R in the province and for many, possibly their first visit and opportunity to enjoy our renowned hospitably and beautiful scenery.
The conference will be held at the Sheraton Hotel Newfoundland
, at the bottom of Signal Hill, with a view out the narrows and within walking distance to many historic sites.
The scientific committee has worked hard to ensure a scientific program and pre conference course that will provide an educational opportunity for all who practice our specialty. We look forward to a productive, engaging and fulfilling meeting for all who attend.
Regarding entertainment, on Thursday evening you will visit “The Rooms
” which houses the Provincial Archives, Art Gallery and Museum, with a picturesque view overlooking St. John’s Harbour.
Historically, “The Rooms
” mirror fishing rooms, where fisherman and their families would gather to process and store their catch. During this time they would spin a yarn, mend gear, as well as, prepare and plan for their next day fishing. Physiatrists are now gathering from across Canada to discuss topics of interest, as well as, new directions in research and practice in Physiatry.
During your visit at “The Rooms
”, you will have an opportunity to participate in an auction of local artists, with the proceeds going to the Canadian Physiatrists Research and Development Foundation. As well, we will present the Meridith Marks Award for Excellence in Education and Award of Merit.
On Friday afternoon, you have the opportunity to play golf at Glendenning Golf Course
or take a site seeing tour of St John’s or sail out the narrows whale watching. You may, just want to hike Signal Hill and visit the Johnson GEO Centre
, a geological interpretation centre, located on Signal Hill, which is one of a kind and has something of interest for all who visit.
On Friday evening, you can participate in a pub-crawl, where you visit three pubs on the legendary George Street
with meal and entertainment, while becoming an honorary Newfoundlander and Labradorian. The night will finish, with everyone gathering for an evening of dancing to Newfoundland and Celtic Music.
Saturday evening is our annual dinner and awards, with after dinner entertainment provided by The Ennis Sisters.
So come and enjoy our unique culture and heritage and make this a trip, or as we say in Newfoundland, “a Time”, to remember.
We look forward to seeing you on the rock!
