Earlier this month James Anderson was invited to present at the 2009 (CCHA) Central College Health Association Annual Conference held at Creighton University, sponsored jointly by The Creighton University Center for Health and Counseling and Creighton University School of Medicine Continuing Medical Education Division. The stated purpose of this conference is to feature nationally recognized experts presenting topics relevant to college health. Those attending included College Health Personnel, Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Nurses, Public Health Personnel and other interested healthcare personnel associated with college health across the Midwest United States.
James shared with us his feedback…
“My presentation focused on the form, function and positional influence of the respiratory diaphragm and breathing on the collegiate back. The title of my presentation was “Caring for the Collegiate Back”, but it was a PRI presentation on respiratory influences from start to finish. This diverse group of medical professionals were overwhelmingly positive about the material and many stayed after the presentation with additional questions and comments. They wanted to know things like, “where can I find someone in my area that practices PT like this?” and “how can I help local rehab professionals in my area get the needed training to evaluate patients like this?”. It turned out to be a great experience that had implications across many different disciplines and certainly put PRI in a favorable light in terms of being viewed as a specialized solution for evaluation and treatment of chronic difficult misunderstood cases.”
