Conferences highlight intrauterine contraception

To obtain up-to-the-minute education on intrauterine contraception, attend A Clinical Update on Intrauterine Contraception continuing medical education program organized by the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals (ARHP). The goal of the program is to help make intrauterine contraception a more utilized birth control method in the United States.

ARHP is providing logistical support, honoraria, and travel expenses to faculty lecturers for the project. It is funded through an unrestricted educational grant from Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals.

The ARHP annual meeting, scheduled for Sept. 26-29 at the Hilton Minneapolis, will feature an IUD training session during a Sept. 26 pre-conference. Cost for the pre-conference session is $200. Registration information is available online at
