34th Annual Meeting Session Submissions

The 34th Annual Meeting Session Submission period is now open. We're looking for cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation professionals to share innovative approaches, proven success stories, and industry best practices at our 2019 conference. Session proposals are currently being accepted for breakout sessions, rapid-fire sessions and pre-meeting workshops in the following educational tracks:

  • Cardiovascular Rehabilitation & Clinical Cardiology
  • Pulmonary Rehabilitation & Medicine
  • Behavioral Change and Nutrition
  • Innovative Leadership
  • Program Management

More about session types:

  • Breakouts: 60- or 75-minute sessions focused on a specific topic in a particular track (eg., ITP, psychological aspects of PR and CR, physical activity, business aspects of programs)
  • Rapid-Fires: 45-minute, track-specific and highly interactive sessions that elicit significant audience participation
  • Pre-Meeting Workshops: 3-8-hour workshops that operate independently from the rest of the conference with additional registration
    • Often offer a mixture of theory and practice such as staff competencies for core components, program certification preparation and CCRP preparation

AACVPR is dedicated in providing quality education to its members, and we need cardiopulmonary professionals like you to help build a well-rounded education program for the 2019 event, September 18-21, 2019 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland. The session submission period closes at 11:59 p.m. CT on January 7, 2019.
