SFP’s annual meeting is part of the new North American Forum on Family Planning, launched in 2011 and sponsored jointly by SFP and Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA). This two-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. Additionally, SFP will be 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 two annual awards—the Society of Family Planning Lifetime Achievement Award and the Allan Rosenfield Award for Lifetime Contributions to International Family Planning.
The next North American Forum on Family Planning will be held October 6-7, 2013 in Seattle, Washington. For more information, contact Susan Higginbotham.
