RESCHEDULING the 2020 WORK RELATED INJURIES WORKSHOP
to March 29th & 30th, 2021
In these fluid times, it’s clear each day – is different. We have spent the last month or so focusing on the new developments each day, consulting with our medical experts on our Advisory Board, and also trying to step back a bit and spend quality time with our families.
Our conference attendees, faculty members, exhibitors and sponsors are all balancing the many dynamics of our new normal. Life has stood still a bit, yet somehow become quite busy at the same time. Also, many of you are heavily involved in the COVID-19 pandemic and priorities are rightfully elsewhere. Please know our thoughts are with you and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your sacrifices. May you all stay healthy.
With all of this in mind we have made the decision to suspend efforts to reschedule the 2020 Work Related Injuries Workshop within 2020. We will very simply reconvene in a year on…. March 29th & 30th, 2021 (Mon & Tues).
Please know we are dedicated to the health and safety of all who attend our meeting, and also to the top-class experience many of you have grown to love and expect from our annual conference. Our 2021 conference will be no different, with an added focus on these priorities. You can also expect for the program to feature the COVID-19 pandemic and how it has changed the occupational health arena.
All registrants, sponsors, and exhibitors will automatically be registered for the 2021 conference at no charge and with nothing for you to do. If a registrant, sponsor, or exhibitor wishes not to attend the conference in 2021 a request for a full refund can be submitted. Simply email Michela Capobianco at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lastly, in an effort to keep us all connected over this next year we will be looking into ways to stay connected virtually and options for virtual learning. Keep an eye on your inbox for more details.
Until then, please stay healthy and stay home!

Someone said to me at the conference, “I’m sorry to have never met Lew Millender.” I replied, “yes you have.” And I swept my hand and arm around the room that was buzzing at lunch on Tuesday with the most incredible energy – joy – laughter – and passionate conversations. “This is Lew Millender.” …[This conference has] helped to preserve a tradition that goes beyond one man, to a philosophy of compassionate care for each and every injured worker who is touched by one of the many disciplines associated with this conference.

I was blown away by the recent WC conference in Waltham…. It was wonderful to see that the recommendations I had made last year made it into the program this year. The segments addressing alternative to opioid therapy were very well done. It delighted me to see surgeons giving psychiatrists and psychologists a standing ovation!!!
