  • I love attending the ASHT conference. It is wonderful to connect with my hand therapy colleagues whom I don’t get to work alongside on a daily basis. It also helps me continue to grow my skills and stay connected to advances in the profession.

  • The Annual Meeting is such an exciting time for us hand and upper extremity therapists. From learning emerging evidence-based treatment ideas, seeing innovative research in our field, reconnecting with friends far and wide, to meeting new colleagues and students, I look forward to it every year. I am also excited to be in back in Texas again and to explore all that San Antonio has to offer!
