FWRA Symposium 2017
Thursday, September 21st through Sunday, September 25th

Plans for the 2017 symposium are underway! We’ll have classes to improve your diagnostic skills, sessions on improving ourselves as educators, beginner rehabilitation skills, and species specific classes. There’s still time to make requests, so let us know what we can do to help. Please don‘t miss this opportunity to learn, share and network.
