As always, it's an honor and a pleasure to be spending this time with you. Before we begin, there are a couple of thank yous as we move forward. I wanted to thank OPTP Products for hosting me on their webinar, which was on September 16th. I conducted a webinar for them on mindfulness and acceptance-based approaches for the treatment of chronic pain. Also, I talked about some information from my latest book, Radical Relief, which you can find on their website as well. Thank you for all the great people at OPTP. Make sure you check them out on their website, which is OPTP.com.
On October 21st, I'll be giving a two-hour session on mindfulness and acceptance-based approaches for the treatment of chronic pain at the New York Physical Therapy Association Annual Conference. I hope to see you there. I also want to thank the NYPTA for inviting me. Finally, you can catch me and our guest in this episode at The 2021 Educational Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The Excellence in Physical Therapy Education Conference highlights excellence in physical therapy, as well as innovation. It's a collaborative effort by the APTA Academy of Education and the American Council of Physical Therapy.
If you're a PT or PT educator and you're going to be at the 2021 ELC Conference, make sure to visit me and my colleague. We're presenting a session called Mindfulness and Acceptance-based Interventions in Physical Therapy Education. It's time to address the cycle of distress using evidence-based practice. Also, if you're attending the conference, make sure to catch the keynote by our guest, Dr. Nicole Piemonte. It's on Friday, October 22nd at 8:00 AM. She'll be speaking about cultivating the habits of the heart of patient care, including compassion, vulnerability and imagination.
Let me tell you about Dr. Nicole Piemonte before we begin. She is the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs and a faculty member in the Department of Medical Humanities at Creighton University School of Medicine. She earned her PhD in Medical Humanities, where she focused on Philosophy and Medical Ethics. Her teaching and research focus on incorporating the humanities into medical education in order to cultivate future practitioners who are tuned to suffering, vulnerability and social justice.
In this episode, we discuss the benefits of confronting suffering and vulnerability, both in healthcare education, as well as its impact on patient outcomes. Once again, I want to thank the New York Physical Therapy Association and the Educational Leadership Conference for inviting me to speak. It's a great honor. I look forward to meeting all of you and without further ado, let's begin. Let's meet Dr. Nicole.
