    The Committee on Scientific Program and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists are pleased to announce the call for session proposals for the 2020 ACOG Annual Clinical and Scientific Meeting in Seattle, WA, April 24 - 27, 2020.

    Since ACOG's last call for session proposals closed in January 2018, innovations and advances in obstetrics and gynecology continue to be made. This year's call provides you with a great opportunity to contribute to dynamic, cutting-edge conversations and help the coming year's meeting cover the field's best emerging ideas and most important issues.

    The Committee on Scientific Program will review these proposals for the 2020 Annual Meeting at their upcoming January meeting.

    If you are presenting a course at the 2019 Annual Meeting, you DO NOT need to resubmit a proposal. All course evaluations are reviewed after the Annual Meeting and the committee will determine whether the course will be repeated for the 2020 Annual Meeting. 

    Deadline: Monday, January 14, 2019

    Since 1970, a critical source of affordable high-quality family planning care for low-income women, men, and adolescents across the United States has been the network of providers that receive funds through the Federal Title X Family Planning Program. The program, administered by the Office of Population Affairs in the Department of Health and Human Services under the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, funds a network of approximately 4,000 service sites around the country. The Title X program is an important cornerstone in efforts to meet the needs of low-income Americans; Title X funds subsidize family planning services for women, men, and adolescents who may not have health insurance or who are not eligible for Medicaid. Millions of individuals (nearly 9 million) receive publicly funded family planning (FP) services each year, and 4.6 million of them obtain care from a health center that receives Title X funding.

The study demonstrated that the epigenetics-based test outperformed both the Pap smear and the human papilloma virus (HPV) test, as well as being more cost effective.
