Thanks to everyone who caught the typo in last week's eSplash. Yes, all the pediatric courses we listed (and have repeated below) will be held in 2009, not 2008. Hey, for a kid's course you gotta allow a senior moment.
  • Durham, North Carolina - February 2009
  • San Francisco Bay area - March 2009
  • Minneapolis, MN - May 2009
  • St. Louis, MO - July 2009
  • Pennsylvania - October 2009
And, speech therapists, we haven't forgotten about you! Our San Francisco Bay Area will also feature a speech therapist track.

If you love treating children but need fresh ideas to work in the pool, plan on attending one of these seminars.
