Modern Fertility Awareness for Family Planning and Precision Women’s Health
April 5, 2019 | 8:30 am to 5:00 pm | Indianapolis, IN
Over the past 50 years, significant innovations have been made in women’s healthcare, particularly within the realm of reproductive science. Parallel to these advances, natural methods for monitoring the female cycle have been standardized and refined based on ongoing research. This has led to modern, evidence-based fertility awareness based methods (FABMs). Unfortunately, the overwhelming majority of physicians are not familiar with FABMs, how their effectiveness rates compare to OCPs, and how the information recorded on women’s charts can aid in the diagnosis and management of common women’s health concerns. To address this knowledge gap FACTS is presenting several one-day conferences in 2019 designed to equip medical and health professionals to offer more holistic healthcare options for women. Join us!
*This conference will take place just before the 2019 Meeting of the American College of Pediatricians (ACP) and the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians & Gynecologists (AAPLOG)
