This year’s conference will feature in-depth sessions on pelvic pain conditions including endometriosis, dysmenorrhea, fibroids, vascular etiologies, and sexual pain. Speakers will share the most-up to date research and practice guidelines with a focus on just and equitable care as well as trauma informed care. The conference will begin on Thursday, October 19 with the Fundamentals in Pelvic Pain course as well as a Master Class for Mental Health Specialists entitled Treating the Whole Person: Mental Health and Pain. On Friday and Saturday, October 20-21, award winning speakers including Dr. Samantha Meltzer Brody from Duke University, Dr. Sawsan As-Sanie from Michigan University, and Dr. Diana Atashroo from Stanford will be featured. Then on Sunday, October 22 we will offer an Integrated Health and Pain Management course led by Dr. David Clarke from Oregon Health & Science University and a Virtual Course for individuals living with pelvic pain. This year’s program promises to be diverse in topic and speakers, interactive, and applicable to a wide range of clinicians from various specialties including primary care, gynecology, minimally invasive surgery, physical therapy, behavioral health, and physiatry.
We hope you can join us in "Mile-High City" Denver, Colorado this October and we look forward to seeing you all!
