Welcome!
This month we have two fantastic announcements for you:

1. Member Reward Program!

While knowledge is its own reward, our market research has shown that our members would love a member reward program. That is why we are offering this pilot program between now and January 1, 2010. You will receive a Visa gift card for your purchases!

And, the more you buy, the more you earn. So, now fulfilling your CEU requirements can also mean cash in your pocket!

ONCOLOGY SECTION REGIONAL COURSE:
Nov 14-15, 2009
Providence Health System in  Portland, OR:
Interventions for Cancer Patients and Cancer Survivors -- In the past, oncology patients were encouraged not to exercise for fear that such activities were detrimental. Now, exercise is increasingly viewed as an integral component of the treatment of oncology patients across the cancer spectrum. However, cancer and its treatment create novel clinical situations requiring rehabilitation professionals to correctly and appropriately apply exercise as a therapeutic intervention.  Given that exercise training is a relatively new therapeutic intervention for this patient population, completion of this course will help rehabilitation professionals to identify new practice opportunities.
