Key Bridge Marriott, 1401 Lee Highway, Arlington, Virginia

Welcome to the NAALT/WALT
Joint Photobiomodulation Conference

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the formation of a Joint NAALT/WALT Photobiomodulation Conference, to be held at the acclaimed Key Bridge Marriott in Arlington, Virginia on August 6–9, 2020. The North American Association for Photobiomodulation Therapy (NAALT) has joined forces with the World Association for Photobiomodulation Therapy (WALT) to host this premier event.

An unprecedented line-up of leading authorities on photobiomodulation will be presenting, along with new work from up-and-coming scientists. WALT and NAALT leaders are working together to develop a world-class scientific program. A call for Abstracts will be announced early in 2020. Commercial exhibitors will be given greater opportunity to demonstrate the latest in laser and PBM therapy technologies.

Please add this event to your calendar, and bookmark this page as more information will be added soon.
