Annual Update on Women's Health Conference

 

September 7-9, 2016

Overview

The breadth and complexity of issues surrounding women's healthcare makes it increasingly difficult for healthcare professionals to remain current. Guidelines and recommendations for routine care in pregnancy, adulthood, menopause and beyond are constantly being updated. The goal of this conference is to incorporate several important healthcare issues from various specialties and illustrate how they uniquely impact women.

This conference is designed to bring together experts from a variety of disciplines to discuss advances in women's healthcare in one concise meeting. Workshops have been added to facilitate greater participation and interaction among attendees. This conference is intended for physicians, advance practice providers, midwives, nurses, students and other allied healthcare professionals who provide care for women.

* Review up-to-date management of abnormal vaginal bleeding, diabetes in pregnancy, hyperlipidemia, opiate addiction treatment in pregnancy, pelvic organ prolapse, fibromyalgia and more.
