About the series...

As every parent knows, children are not adults in tiny bodies. Their development, needs, and care are different. This is especially true in medical care. Diseases (like cancer) may have similar names for adults and children, but the presentation, treatment, and prognosis can be very different. In a series of six webinars, Healwell teams up with experts in pediatric care to bring you in depth information on pediatric pathologies. If you want to be part of the team working with children in a clinical setting, this knowledge is essential. If you are curious, but unsure, these webinars will give you an informed introduction.

Note: Completion of all six courses is required for acceptance into our live Pediatric Massage in the Clinical Setting course.

Instructor & Executive Director

Cal Cates

Cal has been teaching and developing curriculum for massage therapy courses focused on hospital-based practice, oncology massage and end of life care since 2007. Their experience in clinical practice in hospitals around the US has informed their teaching style greatly. Cal is clear that massage therapy is healthcare and feels a personal commitment to inviting students to consider themselves as integral to a whole person healing process. Their favorite thing about teaching healthcare providers is the ability to blend nerdiness and authenticity to create opportunities to be more effective, more human and more flexible.
