Education Series

Our next Education Series seminar will be held on Tuesday, February 14, 2017. The topic is "Breast Cancer and Lymphedema." It will be presented by Physical Therapist Donna Gulick.

Dr. Donna Gulick graduated from Daemen College with her B.S in Physical Therapy in 1984 and received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2005. In 1989 she and her business partner opened Orthosports Physical Therapy. She became a certified lymphedema therapist in 2009 through the Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy and was recently recertified by the same program. Dr. Gulick lives in East Amherst with her husband Dean and 2 cats.

The program is free and open to BCN members and non-members. Light refreshments will be served at 6:00 PM followed by announcements and the presentation.
