The Forum is the premiere scientific and educational family planning conference for medical and social scientists, clinical providers and staff, and will feature CME accredited sessions that address a full range of services and research interests. This gathering represents the intersection of leaders and practitioners in family planning and abortion who are seeking to engage the most current and innovative dialogue related to safe, convenient, high-quality reproductive health care through research, discussion, and sharing of robust evidence-based practice recommendations. The Forum is intended for physicians, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, social scientists, and researchers who are interested in advancing evidence-based practices in family planning, abortion, and preventive reproductive health services.
