North American Forum on Family Planning
SFP’s annual meeting is part of the North American Forum on Family Planning, launched in 2011 and sponsored jointly by SFP and Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA). This three-day meeting, along with the SFP pre-conference Career Development Seminar, is held each autumn in a different city. Session topics include new research and clinical practice issues related to contraception, abortion, STIs, sexuality, and how to translate the best evidence into clinical practice. SFP is the lead partner in managing the scientific abstracts.
The SFP annual Business Meeting and Awards Luncheon are also held during the Forum, and feature presentation of our three annual awards—the Society of Family Planning Lifetime Achievement Award, the Allan Rosenfield Award for Lifetime Contributions to International Family Planning, and the Robert A. Hatcher Family Planning Mentor Award.
The next North American Forum on Family Planning will be held October 14-16, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia, and will be preceded by two days of pre-conference events. Conference session proposals will be accepted here from February 15 through March 15, 2017. Online abstract submissions will run from March 8 through April 12, 2017. Abstracts will be peer-reviewed; those accepted will be published in the October 2017 issue of Contraception, An International Reproductive Health Journal.
