Participants from around the globe spent three days attending papers, posters, and interactive workshops to exchange knowledge, experiences, and perspectives about how evidence can be developed and used to measure, develop, and implement participation interventions. The group also toured the innovative Beitostølen Healthsports Center, which celebrated it’s 50th anniversary of providing adaptive sports and leisure to enhance the well-being of people with disabilities.

“I was honored to be featured alongside other leaders in the field, and to be part of an international movement to ensure pediatric rehabilitation addresses the participation “F words” – Functioning, Family, Fitness, Fun, Friends, and Future.”
