  • Fun class! I was impressed with the knowledge gained in just the first 15 minutes of the weekend course!
  • Susan has great knowledge and passion towards what she teaches. She also has a great calmness in the way she teaches.
  • I LOVED this course! I feel much more prepared to take on patients with fecal incontinence!
  • I have taken several bowel courses in the past and this was by far the most enjoyable!  With most of the basic anatomy and physiology covered in pre-course reading materials, we were able to focus on the practical application of skills, nutrition counseling, learning rectal ballooning, and having great discussions about all things bowel-related.  I have started to think more holistically in my treatment as a result. Thanks!
