SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE

Become a post-rehabilitative breast cancer exercise specialist

 

The Pink Ribbon Program is an exercise program designed specifically for post-operative breast cancer survivors. Program founder and director of the Pink Ribbon Program, Doreen Puglisi M.S., became aware of the need as she herself was diagnosed with breast cancer. She used the Pink Ribbon Program to regain the range of motion as well as strength in her affected arm.

The Healing Moves Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help people with health challenges get involved in specialized exercise programs, will be hosting a two day workshop on Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5, 2011 at St. Mary’s Center for Health & Fitness.  The class offers continuing education credits for individuals who work with breast cancer survivors through Pilates, physical therapy, occupational therapy, personal training, nursing, and manual lymphatic drainage therapy. The goal of this interactive two day course is to provide the participants with a knowledge base that is essential to the successful evaluation of the breast cancer survivor, from diagnosis to treatment, recovery, prevention of lymphedema and proper exercise guidelines and protocols. Evidence based practice and integration of material from the areas of functional exercise, shoulder rehabilitation and Pilates exercise will be the emphasis of the course sessions.

This course is open to Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Pilates Instructors, Nurses, Personal Trainers and MLD Therapists.

The Pink Ribbon Program is offered on Friday, November 4 starting at 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, November 5 starting at 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Workshop cost is $425 per person plus $35 for course materials.
