Prentice Women's Hospital
250 E. Superior Street, 3rd Floor Harris Atrium
Registration is now open for the 12th Annual Oncofertility Conference which attracts over 250 members of the oncofertility community and is a place where new ideas for research projects develop, networks of clinical care converge, and the interdisciplinary community of oncologists, reproductive endocrinologists, research scientists and patients participate in this cutting edge field. Continuing Medical Education credits are available for interested attendees.
The agenda for the 2018 Oncofertility Conference Bridging the Gaps in Oncofertility Research and Clinical Care: A Global Initiative will feature two full days of lectures, followed by a full day of didactic courses including our 3rd annual Fellow Education Day and three applied learning sessions (Legal, Ethical, and Cultural Considerations in Oncofertility, Fertility Preservation Case Studies, and Existing and Emerging Techniques in Reproductive Health). Dr. Woodruff will provide updates on the Oncofertility Professional Engagement Network (OPEN) and invites you all to join and participate in our exciting subcommittees!
We invite all attendees to submit scientific abstracts for review and inclusion in our conference poster sessions and are offering 4 scholarships to offset travel and registration expenses. Thanks to SREI, we are also able to offer five Fellow Education Day Awards for fellows to attend this year's conference.
