My published material on evidence based techniques will “come alive” to you in my courses
I have dedicated my therapy career to research and clinical treatment of cancer related disease. I have published numerous articles on my research on lymphedema and oncology and I incorporate extensive evidence-based research in my courses. My passion is to provide each therapist with a deep understanding of the physiological changes that take place with lymphedema and how the body can compensate for the changes with specialized manual therapy techniques and utilization of specific products. -Elizabeth Augustine, PT, DPT
