Meeting of the RESNA International Special Interest Group

An online meeting of the RESNA International Special Interest Group (SIG) was held on April 30, 2019. Twenty-two people attended, of which 65% have their primary residence in North America, 12% in Europe/Africa, 6% in Asia and 6% in Central/South America. Half of the participants are currently RESNA members, and 41% plan to attend the RESNA Annual Conference in Toronto June 25-27 of this year.

Attached is the video recording of the conference [English]. Perry screwed up and started the recording after co-chairs Yohali Burrola and Yih-Kuen Jan greeted the participants, and our special guest and President of RESNA, Mary Ellen Buning, expressed her support for our international activities. The visual aids used during the meeting are also attached.

Chair Perry Loh reviewed old business, including the Spanish translation of 6 RESNA position papers to date and the creation of the 24/7 Posture Management Committee. The chair of this committee, Tamara Kittelson-Aldred, explained the goals of the committee and presented a summary of the formative activities to date. Silvana, LeeAnn and Trish have volunteered as liaisons for Latin America, Africa and Asia/Australia respectively.

In new business, chair Perry asked for volunteers to update the SIG webpage, for implementation of the Functional Mobility Assessment in Latin America, and other SIG projects. Please email perry@lohmedical.com if you are interested in helping with any of these activities.

Participants from South Africa, the UK, Canada, the U.S., Argentina, Brazil, India and Israel shared their interests and experience. We have an extraordinary group of people in this SIG. The next meeting will be held live in Toronto at 7 AM ET on Thursday 27/june/19.
