#APPsatATMRD2023

APProviders™ Consortium & Pre-Congress

For Advanced Practice Providers

When was the last time advanced practice providers in movement and related disorders got to gather with colleagues from all over, sparking ideas, sharing resources, and making vital connections? 
On the day prior to the ATMRD Congress, PMD Alliance will host an APProviders™ Conference, a conference unlike any other, exclusively for APPs by APPs in movement and related disorders. During that day and throughout the ATMRD Congress, APPs will have an opportunity to network and engage with peers from across the country. The full weekend will inspire and energize, and participants will return to their practices more connected!

Fernando Pagan Movement Disorder Specialist

"We are fortunate to have Congresses that focus on phenomenology and pathophysiology. This Congress is entirely different and is geared for all level learners, new and seasoned. This Congress is focused on therapeutics. We will be looking at clinical research data, clinical practice experience and therapeutics to understand implications in everyday practice."

Yasar Torres-Yaghi Movement Disorder Specialist

"One of the greatest pain points for physicians is dealing with insurance barriers. We are excited to have the first health care provider Congress with a Resource Lounge staffed with master level social workers, experienced medical assistants, and medication assistance fund experts to assist in navigating this process to improve provider and patient experience."

Sherrie Gould Nurse Practitioner

"Never has this occurred! A specific, full-day conference: organized by APPs, delivered by APPs, attended by APPs. To educate and acquire. To connect and collaborate. To inspire and develop a resource network across the country."
