Thank you for being a part of our community of scientists, clinicians, activists, and patients who are interested in advancing the sexual health of women and girls with cancer!
We want to give a warm welcome and thank you to the new members and attendees of our 6th Conference of the Scientific Network which was held in Durham, North Carolina on September 27-28. It was incredibly rewarding and exciting to see so many new faces at this conference from different fields and perspectives. Thank you for helping us make this conference a success! We had 75 attendees at this conference…the most we have had yet at a Scientific Network conference! And the Network is growing. We have 4 active committees (Membership, Newsletter, Social Media, and Website) as well as writing groups and our 2019 conference planning group. If you want to be involved in any of these, let us know!
In addition to attending our annual conference, there are many ways you can become involved with the Network. Read on to learn about what is happening in the Network more broadly.
We’re pleased to share that we offered our first pre-conference workshop for continuing education credits in conjunction with our conference and it was a great success! This workshop included talks given by renown experts in women’s sexual health in cancer and was attended by 52 attendees. The responses of workshop attendees were overall extremely positive. We are already working to incorporate feedback into future CE offerings.
We are excited about the research our Network members are doing, and we are highlighting this in the Research Spotlight section of this newsletter. If you have original published research to highlight, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org
One thing is clear – the need for education relevant to clinical practice on sexual health and function for women and girls with cancer is real. The Scientific Network is committed to being there to provide state-of-the-science guidance to you and your colleagues with regard to clinical practice in this arena.
