Frequently Asked Questions - Basic Information

What is HWConnect?

HWConnect is the first-ever professional development conference from Herman & Wallace! This three-day conference is for rehab professionals and will be focused on the pelvic health for all genders throughout the life cycle.

After years of pandemic quarantine and Zoom meetings, we have heard from many of our registrants about how they have missed the community and camraderie they had come to expect from our in-person courses. We agree! HWConnect is an opportunity to meet with colleagues and friends old and new, and a unique chance to learn new skills and information from some of the leading voices in our field. 

We are sponsoring this event for the first time in October of 2023, and we plan to make it a regularly recurring conference. 

What does a HWConnect registration include?

A registration for HWConnect will include entry to all speakers' presentations on the conference schedule (no two presentations will take place simultaneously; all registrants are expected to attend each presentation), as well as sponsored evening receptions on Friday and Saturday nights which will include cocktails and light fare.

Hotel accomodations and travel attangements are not included, and are the responsibility of the registrant.
