Are you passionate about pelvic health physical therapy and committed to advancing inclusive care for the LGBTQIA+ community? We invite you to join us for an educational pop-up event "Pride + Pelvises"

This unique, virtual pop-up event aims to celebrate diversity, promote inclusivity, and enhance knowledge surrounding pelvic health within the LGBTQIA+ community. Our dynamic speakers and their innovative sessions explore the intersection of LGBTQIA+ identities and pelvic health physical therapy. 

This event is for you if you want to...
  • Improve sexual health outcomes for queer, trans, and gender-expansive clients and be on the front lines of inclusive health care.
  • Elevate your comfort and confidence to meet the unique needs of transgender men with lower urinary tract symptoms.
  • Gain skills to help your youth and adult transgender athletes know what to expect over the course of medical transition, as well as identify and treat some of the most common concerns for transgender athletes.
