Joanna presents her research at prestigious international conference in San Paulo, Brazil.

We are very proud of our associate osteopath, Joanna Figg-Latham who has been invited to Sao Paulo, Brazil this weekend to present her research on ‘Insights into attitudes, beliefs and behaviours in respect of evidence-based guidance for the management of low back pain among UK osteopathic students and qualified osteopaths’. Joanna will be presenting her paper on Sunday 9th November 2014, to fellow osteopaths from all around the world at the 10th International Research Conference (ICAOR). This annual gathering to promote advances in research recognises practitioners such as Joanna who embrace evidence-based research into their clinical practice to the benefit of their patients. This three day conference includes speakers from as far a field as America, Australia, Germany, Italy and the UK. In this picture we can see Joanna practicing her presentation with osteopathic students. Joanna was awarded the Elsevier Research Prize for this piece of research earlier this year.
