Speakers

Kathy Kates
Kathy Kates MSN, FNP

Kathy Kates, FNP, is a champion of women's health and ran a women's health program for a large medical institution for over a decade. For the first four years, Kathy never thought much about the pelvic floor and its impact on women's health overall. After undergoing breast cancer treatment, that changed when she had significant dyspareunia and learned — as a pelvic floor therapy patient — how important pelvic health is and how little she learned about it in her NP training.
