Earlier this summer, our NAIOMT faculty members gathered for our annual retreat. It's a meaningful time for us to connect face-to-face, dive deep into topics that affect our field and our patients, and discuss everything from new courses and our clinical fellowship program, to how to be the best possible physical therapists, teachers and mentors we can be.
And of course, it's always a treat to hear from master clinician, mentor to many, and NAIOMT co-founder, Erl Pettman.
