“It’s about lifelong learning, isn’t it?”

Today’s episode is so full of quotables – I was writing down words of wisdom from Ann during my entire editing process.  I interviewed Ann H. Newstead, PT, DPT, PhD, GCS, NCS, CEEAA (whew!) for today’s episode on #oncoPT abroad, her work with IPT-HOPE, & a brief foray into how HIV/AIDS fits into oncology physical therapy.
