With a theme of “Transforming and Elevating Female Health,” the symposium will feature expert leaders in women’s health discussing topics such as menopause, treating the female athlete, chronic vulvar pain, breast imaging, pelvic floor dysfunction and more. The symposium is open to all health care professionals working with female patients and provides up to 12 hours of continuing education credits.
Assistant Dean of the College of Chiropractic at Logan and ACA Council on Women’s Health President Kristina Petrocco-Napuli, DC, MS, FICC, FACC said she looks forward to bringing the event back in person this year after a virtual symposium in 2020. For those who prefer to attend virtually, however, a livestream option will be available. Dr. Petrocco-Napuli hopes that those attending will leave the symposium with new expertise and strategies to improve health care for the female patient population.
“It’s important for experts in our profession to teach, collaborate and learn from each other in order to improve health and wellness for their patients, especially female patients,” Petrocco-Napuli said. “Logan University is excited to host this event once again and to share in the thoughtful insights from our fellow practitioners.”

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) is the largest professional chiropractic organization in the United States. ACA attracts the most principled and accomplished chiropractors, who understand that it takes more to be called an ACA chiropractor. We are leading our profession in the most constructive and far-reaching ways–by working hand in hand with other health care professionals, by lobbying for pro-chiropractic legislation and policies, by supporting meaningful research and by using that research to inform our treatment practices. We also provide professional and educational opportunities for all our members and are committed to being a positive and unifying force for the practice of modern chiropractic.
