UPDATE on the 2020 WORK RELATED INJURIES WORKSHOP
Because nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of all who join us at the Work Related Injuries Workshop, attendees, faculty, exhibitors, chaperones, and our program management team, it is with great disappointment that we have made the decision to postpone the 2020 Work Related Injuries Workshop.
This decision was not made lightly. The Coronavirus situation presented us with a difficult challenge in executing a safe educational event with hundreds of individuals, many of whom needed to travel, to the level that we pride ourselves on. It is also clear that many hospitals, universities, and companies have wisely restricted employee travel and attendance at conferences, prohibiting many of our faculty members and many of you from joining us. We do not want any of you to miss this one-of-a-kind program we had planned!
To that end, we are seeking to reschedule the 2020 Work Related Injuries Workshop. We are in the process of identifying new dates. We do ask for everyone’s patience and understanding as we work through the challenging process of rescheduling in somewhat short order. As soon as we have our new dates confirmed we will send an update to you all. If the new dates do not work for you we will then provide an option for a refund or transfer your registration to next year’s conference.
In the meantime, we continue to eagerly prepare for the conference. Registration for the event will also remain open and we encourage you all to invite your colleagues. We also encourage you all to nominate a deserving colleague for the Golden Rose Award. We will extend the time frame that we will be accepting nominations for this.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We hope to see you all very soon!

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!!!
