Aart van Gorkum recently participated in Sean Campbell and Dr. Majid Alimohammadi’s “Anatomy Discover” series as the clinical expert for the upper limb. He presented on common elbow injuries in the throwing adult and adolescent athlete.

Also in the picture are clinical experts, Diane Lee and Carol Kennedy.

This Anatomy Refresher course for physiotherapists was held in the Anatomy Lab in the Life Sciences Building at UBC and allows participants to brush up on their anatomical knowledge using cadavers and some excellent pro-sections. Physiotherapists came from all corners of the profession: Pediatric, cardio resp, neuro, sports, ortho and IMS practitioners.

A great day it was!

Anatomy Discovery

I regrettably developed breast cancer.  Kate has advised me and taught me appropriate exercises to help me recover and maintain optimal function in my arm. Her interest in women’s health and the needs of women dealing with cancer has helped me a lot. Kate has the ability to recognize where I am at physically and to do both hands on treatment and to teach me a reasonable home program of exercises.  I would recommend her to anyone needing help with their physical recovery.
