McLean, VA: The Section on Women’s Health has scheduled a record 26 education sessions, 1 research platform, and 1 research session with 26 posters during the 2017 Combined Sections Meeting of the American Physical Therapy Association February 15-18 in San Antonio, Texas.

The conference is expected to draw more than 11,000 physical therapists in 18 specialties for networking, education, and business meetings.

In addition, SOWH is offering a two-day pre-conference session with internationally renowned movement and pain expert Professor Peter O’Sullivan. Professor O’Sullivan has an extensive body of evidence around the treatment of low back and pelvic pain, working closely with pelvic health physiotherapists in Perth, Australia.

SOWH is an education-focused professional association of nearly 3,000 physical therapy professionals and students focused on pelvic and abdominal health, as well as other men’s and women’s health issues.

“Please join us in San Antonio for a chance to see the breadth and depth of talent within the Section’s members and our colleagues,” says SOWH Director of Programming Sandy Hilton, PT, DPT, MS. “We are pleased to be bringing Professor Peter O’Sullivan and a variety of topics, including keeping people on their bikes, men in pelvic health, and the complexities of human sexuality.”
