Our next event in the ABMP CE Socials series is now open for registration at abmp.com/ce-socials. ABMP CE Socials allow you to connect and engage with your massage community, experts in the field, and ABMP as you learn and earn CE!

On Thursday, May 27, massage therapists and bodyworkers can join us live in our virtual classroom for the brand-new course “Centering Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity in Our Practices” with Shana Chivon. The interactive experience is free for ABMP members and $15 for nonmembers, and includes live event access, your CE certificate, and ongoing access to the course in the ABMP Education Center.

Course description:

Centering communities of color and socially marginalized groups in our work creates diverse and inclusive spaces for radical wellness.
