Headshot: Alexandra Hill, PT, DPT, WCS, CLT-LANA

Within oncology, there’s so much to know, mainly because our patients aren’t neatly siloed into “just” having cancer. They have other impairments, or impairments that were exacerbated by their cancer & treatments. It’s important to know how these other issues can affect our patients & our plans of care.

Alexandra Hill, PT, DPT, WCS, CLT-LANA, is part of an elite group of clinicians in the US: she is dual-board certified in both oncology & women’s health PT! She’s using her incredible knowledge, experience, & passion for treating these patient populations that often go hand-in-hand, & she stopped by the podcast to share how she found her path, how she prepared for these exams, & how she’s making a significant & positive impact on her patients’ lives. You don’t want to miss this interview!
