SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS


Dr. Howard's presentations inspire and educate professional and non-professional audiences. Attendees share this feedback:

. "I always try to make it to Heather's talks. I know I'll learn a lot and also have fun"

. "She immediately put me at ease with her comfort, straighforwardness, and enthusiasm"

. "I went along with my friend to what I thought would be an interesting evening or at least a laugh, and it changed my life"

. "I always avoided the topic of sex because I didn't know anything about it or even like it. After Heather's class, I felt more confident about experimenting and found out I do like sex! Plus, I have great tools for my patients"
