Education Days

Education Day

Once a year, PrintSBANT offers a day of education on topics relevant to the health, wealth and happiness of persons living with spina bifida.  Past presenters have spoken on depression, exercise, bowel and bladder issues, transition services, adaptive sports and more.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Education Day that was held February 22, 2020 at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital in Frisco.
