About The Course:
If your patient has a pelvis, you will benefit from this conference! You don’t have to be a practicing internal pelvic health therapist in order to profit from this one-day conference. Learn the science, critical reasoning and inter-disciplinary approaches needed to fully understand the direction that pelvic health is taking in your community, provincially, nationally and internationally.
