It has come to our attention that a great number of health care professionals and academics will be on board this trip. As such, we thought we would take the opportunity to put together a small conference to share our work with each other, and more importantly, to share our work with the women on board whom much of our work is intended to benefit in one way or another.
We'll be having poster presentations (by hanging posters on our stateroom doors) and organizing small group roundtable discussions at meal times. If the programmers for Olivia are able to find a space and time for us, we may also be able to host some more traditional oral presentations in the form of symposia, lectures and workshops, including potential CME credit workshops.
The deadline for submitting an abstract to be one of the presenters is December 20, 2013. Registration to participate is open to anyone on board and will more than likely be free. We are asking people to register in advance so that we can determine the number of people interested in participating and so that we can organize advance-sign ups for the roundtable discussions.

Can't wait to see you all on the trip!
