Originally planned for Springfield, IL MWTR made the decision to return to the Sheraton-Westport in St. Louis, MO for the 2009 Symposium which was able to provide greater services at a reduced cost. MWTR looks forward to returning to the Sheraton-Westport, site of the 2007 MWTR Symposium, with excellent meeting facilities, and comfortable guest rooms which we hope will benefit all participants of MWTR.
For thirty-eight years the Midwest Symposium on Therapeutic Recreation has been offering students, practitioners, researchers and educators an opportunity to participate in continuing education format in the Midwest. Participants have come from every state in the United States and from every continent in the World. The Midwest Symposium has been recognized regionally, nationally and internationally for the quality of the program content and for the high quality of the presenters.
Now the Midwest Symposium on Therapeutic Recreation and Adapted Physical Activity is planned with practitioners, students and educators as the primary focus for the programs presented on Therapeutic Recreation and Adapted Physical Activity. Most, but not all, of our participants and speakers come from community recreation, mental health, mental retardation, physical rehabilitation, elderly, and outdoor recreation facilities, as well as colleges and universities.
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for this conference are handled at no charge to our paid participants by the Midwest Symposium on Therapeutic Recreation and Adapted Physical Activity.
Registration and program information will soon be posted at: http://muconf.missouri.edu/midwest_symposium/.
