"A summit filled with panels of pelvic health gurus offering their limitless expertise to budding OTs, advanced practitioners, and the in-betweens. If you are searching for inspiration and guidance to ignite your pelvic health fire, this is the summit for you."

- Becca Meredith

"The topics were diverse and filled a lot of gaps in my knowledge! I loved the panelist talks, books and resource recommendations, and tangible recommendations and ways to phrase things during client sessions.

It made me proud to be an OT."

- Abby Huggenberger

"This was a hugely motivating, gratifying and empowering experience amongst well respected colleagues. An event I would not want to miss, for as long as it keeps running!"

- Brooke Reilly

"The summit was a fantastic experience. This is a great opportunity to make connections, network, find mentorship, and learn with and from like-minded individuals."

- Sarah Sidar

"It was amazing. The keynote speaker was phenomenal and truly inspired me. She spoke so much positivity into me as a person & an OT and sparked even more passion within me. I thought it was well organized, great variety of topics, and would absolutely go again!"

- Allison Richardson

"Fresh content you can’t find in any pelvic health course, great expert panels, professional and educational yet intimate enough where you feel like you’re hanging out with some friends."

- Sabina Khan

"It was great for all levels from new to pelvic health all the way to seasoned in pelvic health."

- Wendy Underwood

"I am still on a high and continuing to research topics covered that I would have never given any curiosity to if it weren't for the conference!"

- Kourtney Randsdorp

"The Summit illuminated the ties that bind us as occupational therapists. It reinforced why I have loved being in this profession for the past 44 years. The physical therapists that participated in this summit were supportive and legitimized our contribution to this practice area. Just as different colored yarns interwoven together can create a beautiful tapestry, so too can OTs and PTs working and learning together offer our patients a comprehensive multifaceted healing journey. "

- Linda Hilzen
