CRT Leadership Event Set for April 9-11

Complex rehab technology (CRT) stakeholders will be out in force in April at the National CRT Leadership & Advocacy Conference.

The three-day event will include the first-ever CRT Leadership Day, on April 9, described by NCART Executive Director Don Clayback as "business presentations and breakout sessions for the management teams of providers and manufacturers."

The National Medicaid Summit, April 10, is designed to help attendees to interact with Medicaid programs in their states, Clayback says. State delegation meetings and a Capitol Hill orientation also take place April 10.

The annual Continuing Education & Legislative Advocacy Conference (CELA), which focuses on federal advocacy, happens April 11, as consumers, clinicians, providers and manufacturers meet with Congress to educate them on the importance of CRT. The event takes place in Arlington, Va., at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City - and the dates have been changed to due to the Congressional schedule. For registration information and details go to or
