See You in Denver!
Whitney and I recently got our flights and hotel booked for CSM (The APTA Combined Sections Meeting), and we’re very excited! The conference is being held in Denver, Colorado this year and is only two weeks away. We visited Colorado for the first time in September of last year and loved the state, but we weren’t able to make it to Denver unfortunately. Now we’ll get to explore this popular city! Even though the conference is only about 4 days in length, we decided to stay for longer in order to spend more time seeing all the sights. Any recommendations for things to do in and around Denver would be appreciated.
This will be our second consecutive year at CSM and our first time hosting a meetup at the conference. Last year we made a last minute decision to drive to CSM in Washington D.C. and we were blown away with the environment. We left with a renewed passion for the profession of physical therapy as well as tons of new friends and connections. We announced that we would be there on our Facebook and Instagram pages last year and ended up meeting dozens of our followers at the conference. This year we decided to host a sponsored meetup so that we can meet more of our followers and have 1:1 conversations about travel therapy for those who have questions!
When and Where?
The event is going to be held on Friday, February 14th, from 6:00-9:00pm. The location will be The Back East Bar & Grill, 1600 Champa St #240, Denver, CO 80202. The venue is in downtown Denver just a few blocks from the conference center.
Who’s Sponsoring the Event?
We’re excited to be working with MedTravelers on this event. We have taken the majority of our travel contracts through them and have some wonderful recruiters with the company who we work closely with! MedTravelers is one of the biggest companies in the travel therapy world, plus they are reputable, have tons of jobs, and have great benefits.
There will be free drinks (likely 2-3 per person), free food (appetizers for everyone to share), as well as a drawing for two Visa gift cards at the end of the event!
Current travel therapists as well as current clinicians and third year DPT students (graduating in 2020) who are interested in travel therapy are invited!
Due to limited space at the venue, first and second year DPT students will, unfortunately, not be invited to attend. If you’re a first or second year student who would like to meet up with us as well, you can come visit us in the exhibit hall during the conference. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram pages where we’ll be announcing the booth number that we’ll be at during the conference!
How Many People Will Be There?
We’re going to be limiting the meetup to the first 80 people to RSVP “Going” on the Facebook event. Be sure to RSVP as quickly as possible if you plan to attend since it’s likely those spots will be filled very quickly!
See You There!
This should be an awesome networking event, and we look forward to seeing many of you there!
