SHARE YOUR PLANS FOR NATIONAL REHAB AWARENESS WEEK SEPTEMBER 16-22 FOR A CHANCE TO WIN PRIZES FOR YOUR TEAM!
Hi, Therapy Teams!
It’s hard to believe, but September is HERE!! This is the month in which the National Rehab Awareness Celebration was born. The history of this celebration as a national event dates back to 1976. The National Rehabilitation Awareness Foundation was established in 1996 by Allied Services, a not-for-profit healthcare system headquartered in Scranton, Pa. Allied, since 1976, served as sponsor of National Rehabilitation Week, a nationwide celebration to educate people about the benefits of rehabilitation and the capabilities of people with disabilities.
The Foundation was created to extend the observance from a week-long event to a year ‘round awareness campaign. One of the Foundation’s main initiatives is to elevate the celebration to a greater level of prominence. This year’s Rehabilitation Awareness Celebration Week is scheduled for September 16 – 22, 2013. You can check out great ideas for RAISING AWARENESS OF REHABILITATION THROUGH CELEBRATION EVENTS by visiting the Foundation website at http://www.nraf-rehabnet.org/
