- About AAP
The AAP is turning 50! That's right - Ernest Johnson, MD, AAP's 'founding father' started the AAP in 1967 with a small group of physiatric leaders to improve the scientific rigor of the specialty.
You were once an AAP member - that means you are a part of our history and played an important role in all that's been accomplished in advancing physiatric research and education! AAP's upcoming 50th anniversary won't be the same without you - reinstate your membership now to join in on the celebration and fun as we look back on the past 50 years and forward to the next half-century!
