On May 29 – June 2, the tenth International Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (ISPRM) Congress took place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In accordance with the theme of “Embracing and Empowering Rehabilitation Medicine: from Knowledge to Practice,” innovative scientific sessions were presented by experts from the field to share their knowledge and experience. Passionate about community based rehabilitation and program development, Fengyi Kuo, one of our occupational therapists, was invited to speak at the Congress. Her two studies, entitled “Stop Taking on Pounds (STOP): A Pediatric Weight Management Program for Underserved, At-Risk Minority Children” and “Social Participation in Community-Dwelling Older Adults through the Lifestyle Redesign Program®”, both focus on health promotion and community based program development and evaluation were scheduled as oral presentations. Another community-based rehabilitation project for minority youth, “Life Skills Training for Adolescents Resettled in the United States from Southeast Asia” was scheduled as a poster presentation. All three presentations were well received.
