During Women's Health Week, which is celebrated May 13-19, APTA is partnering with its Section on Women's Health to build awareness of women's health issues that can be prevented and treated by a physical therapist with its #overshare initiative. APTA will host a 1-hour program on Move Forward Radio and a Twitter party, both on May 15 at 7 pm ET. Women across the country can listen online and call the show to ask questions or submit them in advance via Twitter by tweeting @MoveForwardPT and using the hashtag #overshare. APTA members Pamela Downey, PT, DPT, WCS, of Miami and Rebecca Stephenson, PT, DPT, WCS, of Medfield, Massachusetts, and Los Angeles gynecologist Judith Reichman, MD, author of Slow Your Clock Down: The Complete Guide to a Younger, Healthier You, will discuss women's health issues, covering everything from incontinence and pregnancy to fitness and bone health. APTA also has published a free, downloadable e-book, Women’s Health Across the Lifespan, to support the initiative, which will be available the day of the show at www.moveforwardpt.com/womenshealth. Read more about the initiative in the press release.
