First Wednesday of every month

This month, we will have a physical therapist who specializes in pelvic floor relaxation concerns, such as incontinence, come and speak with us. Katie Dougherty, PT,DPT has graciously offered to donate her time and expertise to the group!
Katie is a physical therapist, who has been practicing for 8 years at St. Michaels Medical Center a Virginia Mason/Franciscan Health hospital in Bremerton, Washington. She is a a graduate of Washington State University (BS in Biological Sciences) and of Eastern Washington University where she earned a Doctorate of Physical therapy. She became interested in the need for pelvic floor physical therapy after having two children and having a greater appreciation and understanding of the importance of a healthy pelvic floor. She is known for saying, with a twinkle in her eye… Whether it’s pelvic floor pain, incontinence, constipation or anything in between, pelvic floor physical therapy can help!
This is our mutual support and social group for women of all ages who are living with FSHD. We created this women-only space to discuss health, self-care, and any other topics that we find easier to discuss with other females. Our group is hosted and facilitated by a group of volunteers. We may suggest articles and conversation-starters to get each meeting going, but this is truly your space to share what’s on your mind.
Please register below and we will send out reminders with the Zoom link on the day of each monthly gathering. This is a Zoom meeting and we prefer not to share the link on a public website (to discourage Zoom bombers).
