5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Vancouver Convention Centre – East Building
The International Urogynecological Association (IUGA) will hold its 2017 IUGA Public Forum on Pelvic Floor Health from 5:30-7:30pm on Monday, June 19, 2017, in conjunction with World Continence Week, June 19-25, 2017.
Each year, IUGA holds a free forum, open to the residents of the local community hosting its annual meeting. The aim of the Public Forum is to empower women and advance their understanding of problems with the pelvic floor area. This year, IUGA is pleased to present its Public Forum on Pelvic Floor Health to residents of the greater Vancouver area during its Annual Meeting, which runs from June 20-24. IUGA’s annual meeting will bring approximately 1,500 attendees who specialize in the fields of pelvic pain and female pelvic floor disorders to the Vancouver Convention Centre for education and training.
At the 2017 IUGA Public Forum, you will have the opportunity to hear from experts in the field who will discuss not only urinary incontinence, but also painful sex (dyspareunia), and how to prevent pelvic floor problems. You will be surrounded by others just like yourself – those experiencing pelvic floor issues and looking for answers, those who want to learn how to prevent pelvic floor disorders in the first place, and caregivers – all in a safe environment where it is OK to ask the questions you have been too afraid or embarrassed to ask.
Advance registration is not required, but we hope you will RSVP here to help us get an idea of attendance and to provide us with a way to keep you informed of the event details as the date draws closer.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2017 IUGA Public Forum on Pelvic Floor Health on Monday, June 19!
