Special Programs and class presentation Kits
Ever wish you could educate your patients in a group setting, give them useful and appropriate education on topics that mattered to them, and reinforce the teachings of your practice? While this may be possible for some practices, for many, it is not a reality. The time and energy it takes to put together a presentation, not to mention the promotional pieces needed to get the word out to your patients and community make these types of endeavors difficult for most busy healthcare professionals.
That's where we come in. Introducing NAFC's BE STRONG Class Presentation Kits. We've rounded up the brightest minds in the industry to take all the guesswork out of developing an educational program for your patients. Our BE STRONG Presentation Kits are developed by an esteemed advisory board of trained Physical Therapists, and come fully loaded with presentations, notes and instruction guides, and promotional materials such as patient handouts, posters, sample emails, and social media posts to help you get the word out.
We are proud to offer these kits to our Healthcare Professional audience and hope you will use them to enhance your practice and spread the word about pelvic floor and urological health.
