As co-chairs of the 2020 PAMA Annual Symposium, we invite you to join with us June 19-22, 2020 in celebrating inclusion, diversity, and cultural immersion by engaging in the unique cultural landscape of New Orleans, the birthplace of Jazz, through a commitment to:

  • Promoting the highest quality of care for all performing artists by striving to overcome the unique occupational challenges they face.
  • Developing educational programs designed to enhance the understanding of the root causes of medical problems faced by performing artists to foster a pathway to prevention.
  • Fostering communication among all involved in the health care, education, and well being of performing artists by expanding the conversation of how to overcome obstacles to prime performance.
  • Encouraging research into the etiology, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of medical problems of performing artists by creating opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration. In particular we will invite key members of other collaborative organizations to participate in workshops and panels.
