ANNOUNCING THE JOINT NAALT/WALT PHOTOBIOMODULATION
VIRTUAL SUMMIT | OCTOBER 1 - 3, 2021

CALL FOR PAPERS REGISTRATION EXHIBITORS / SPONSORSHIP

THE NORTH AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR PHOTOBIOMODULATION THERAPY HAS TEAMED UP WITH THE WORLD ASSOCIATION FOR PHOTOBIOMODULATION THERAPY TO HOST THE PRIMARY PBM EVENT OF 2021.

Photobiomodulation Virtual Summit 2021

October 1 - 3, 2021 in New York

 

MAINSTREAM MEDICINE

PBM2021 will focus on PBM becoming a mainstream medical procedure. Institutions such as NICE in the UK and medical insurance companies in the US now recognize PBM as “medically necessary”. Regulatory gatekeepers, reimbursement experts, and policy officials will be invited to explain the roadmap to medical acceptance. Last year, 627 academic papers were published on PBM bringing the total to over 7,000 in the last 30 years. This conference will be about leveraging this body of science to make PBM more readily available.

30 YEARS OF WALT AND NAALT

Our previous 30 conferences have inspired the academics and clinicians who have brought PBM to the threshold of mainstream acceptance. Our events grew from a few dozen people 30 years ago to 380 at the last WALT meeting, and there is every reason to expect even more with this combined event featuring the global reach and convenience of a virtual event.

SHARING NEW APPLICATIONS AND PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE

The foremost authorities will present their latest research on all aspects of Photobiomodulation including mechanisms of action, physiological changes, clinical research, and consensus guidelines. At previous events, presentations included nerve regeneration, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, depression, improved cognitive function in healthy people, musculoskeletal pain, neuropathic pain, osteoarthritis, macular degeneration, heart attack, stroke, chronic kidney disease, COVID-19, cancer treatment side-effects (Oral mucositis, xerostomia, radiation dermatitis, lymphoedema, dysphasia), opioid use disorder, and a wide range of dental and veterinary applications.

WATCH PAUSE REWIND

You’ll be able to watch from the comfort of your own home, leave comments and ask questions in the chat, find your friends, join a special interest group, download handouts, and re-watch videos as often as you like.
