What people are saying about us
The SoWH is a community of compassionate therapists who care about their profession and the impact they make in their patients’ lives. The resources available through the SoWH for education, research and general communication among therapists is amazing. The courses and instructors are the best I’ve encountered in my career. The opportunities for involvement in making a difference in our profession is boundless. The SoWH has brought a whole new path to my career and a new depth to my interest and involvement in the APTA. I am thrilled to be a part of this group! – Kristi Kliebert, SoWH Member and Volunteer
Excellent educational courses, great networking, Pelvic PT Locator service, and up to date information. – Lola S. R., SoWH Member
As an attendee of the Pelvic Health Physical Therapy Level 1 course (PH1), I was so impressed by how in-depth the curriculum material was as well as how much expertise was present to deliver it. I have been so inspired by one instructor in particular – the balance she struck between her panache and her humility, her very apparent genuine respect for her patients, her willingness to share of her various life stories, the way she excelled at presenting material, and the skill with which she advocated for the pelvic health physical therapy discipline. We are so fortunate to have members involved in this section of the APTA. – Jessica Joy, SoWH Course Attendee
I chose to advertise through the SOWH because I value the professionals in the organization, the gold standard of education provided in the courses, and the great work that the section is doing to promote pelvic health for all people. I have found that through our marketing efforts with the SOWH we have been able to build a wonderful relationship with the amazing pelvic health PT’s who take care of our customers. – Amanda Olson, Intimate Rose, Donor and Sponsor
