The Continuing Education Symposium on April 9th, 2011 was held at the Holiday Inn Convention Center in Tinley Park, Illinois. There were over 160 attendees on Saturday. The therapists attended one of three different classes which included; “Balance Matters in Fall Prevention”, “Evaluation and Management of Dysphagia in the Long Term Care Setting” or “Management of the Hemiplegic Shoulder Complex”.
Mike Billings, President of Infinity Rehab, spoke during lunch and provided a company update as well as news in the healthcare industry. The therapy team at Exceptional Care received the 2010 Team Award. Two vendors attended the symposium, ROX by GiftRAP and Dyna Splint.
