Pediatric-adolescent medicine, OB/GYN, allied health, nurse practitioners and mental health professionals are gathering in Toronto for the NASPAG 30th Annual Clinical and Research Meeting.

Health professionals who provide gynecologic care to children and adolescents are gathering April 7-9, 2016, in Toronto, Canada, for the North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (NASPAG) 30th Annual Clinical and Research Meeting. At this event they will share research and clinical recommendations to improve the care they provide their patients. Obstetricians, gynecologists, pediatricians, nurses and mental health professionals will participate in workshops and lectures to learn about topics such as early onset puberty, hypothalamic amenorrhea, treating transgender patients, surgical emergencies and many more.

The Annual Clinical and Research Meeting is NASPAG’s primary annual meeting. The event is one way NASPAG fulfills its mission of providing a forum for education, research and communication among health professionals who provide gynecologic care to children and adolescents. “The annual meeting is the one big chance during the year for professionals dedicated to the care of pediatric and adolescent girls to interact face-to-face to share breakthroughs and information related to their area of expertise,” says Dr. Joe Sanfilippo, NASPAG Executive Director. “It’s a special time for NASPAG. It’s where attendees get inspired to go back to their local cities and towns to continue caring for a special group of patients.”    

“NASPAG energizes its audience—our members and meeting attendees,” says Dr. Ellen Rome, NASPAG President. “At the meeting and after, we are inspired to prevent more teen pregnancies through acquired skills, to be the transformative change in a young girl’s life, to empower young people and their families to improve their health and wellness. New attendees will share our energy, our passion and our skills when they come to Toronto.”

“We are very lucky to be celebrating the 30th anniversary of NASPAG this year in Toronto,” says Dr. Sari Kives, Program Chair for the meeting. “We have created what I believe to be a very well-rounded and diverse program. I look forward to seeing both new and familiar faces in April.”

The Annual Clinical and Research Meeting is being held at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto. The hotel is located in the heart of Canada’s largest metropolis, which offers an exciting mix of activities and attractions. The NASPAG meeting includes several social events, including a Wine and Cheese Welcome Reception on Thursday, April 7 and an early morning Fun Run on Saturday, April 9.
