PAMA Notes - June 25, 2012

PAMA Symposium - Last Week for Early Bird Discount!

The early bird registration discount will expire this Friday, June 29.  This year is on track to be our largest attendance in the history of the Symposium you don't want to miss it!

Since the first PAMA Symposium 30 years ago there have been tremendous developments and expansion in the field of Performing Arts Medicine.  The 2012 meeting will reference our history as we focus on the wealth of knowledge and experience in current practice and research.  The symposium will culminate with several new exciting research initiatives that look ahead to the next 30 years.

Join us for a Gala Celebration on July 28, 2012 at the annual Symposium to honor leaders and performers who have made unique contributions to the field of Performing Arts Medicine and enhanced the performing arts community.  If you would like to purchase a ticket or table for the Gala Celebration, or if you would like to sponsor a student by purchasing a ticket for them contact Dorry Allen at
