Journal Club Webinar: Biotensegrity and Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Will air on December 9, 2021 | 5:00pm EDT

By applying its principles to our understanding of pelvic organ prolapse, new insights are revealed, which can inform and guide our treatment planning. Tune in with Anna Crowle where they will introduce biotensegrity, and explain what it is and why it matters in pelvic healthcare!
