22nd Annual Congress Hailed As Success



What a terrific conference!


Nearly 1,000 women’s health professionals from 41 states and 18 countries around the world convened in Washington DC, April 4-6 for the 22nd Annual Congress on Women’s Health. Regarded as the most comprehensive, interdisciplinary conference focused solely on best practices for women’s health across the lifespan, the Congress featured an impressive roster of world renowned experts presenting cutting-edge research and breakthrough diagnostic and treatment practices. The weekend also included poster sessions, networking opportunities, exhibitor opportunities and award receptions honoring the field’s top thought leaders, researchers, policy experts and practitioners.


We were so delighted to reconnect with attendees who return year after year and we were thrilled to welcome a record-breaking number of new Academy of Women’s Health members. The enthusiasm and energy was palpable; evidence a promising future for our conference, Academy and field of women’s health.
