Family Planning Symposium Follow-Up Meeting (3/13/2019) – RSVP by 1/31/2019

Posted: 1/29/2019 (Local Events)

The key leaders of the recent Family Planning Symposium recently met and decided to institute quarterly meetings as follow up to facilitate further collaborations and build momentum for a possible Center.

The first meeting will take place on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 from 3-5PM in the Health Sciences Building on the University of Washington campus.  The exact location will be determined by the number of people that plan to attend.  The format of this meeting is still being developed but the general consensus is to have 1-2 “speakers” who will use 15-30 min to discuss their work (hopefully including speakers from areas we haven’t yet touched upon in our multidisciplinary symposia such as legal/policy issues around FP, economics of FP and a deeper dive into Implementation Science and FP).  Then we will have 3-4 folks discuss “work in progress” including new collaborations, grant proposals, paper ideas for feedback.

If you’re interested in attending, please RSVP via this link by January 31, 2019: https://catalyst.uw.edu/webq/survey/metab/365323

The leaders would also like to create a shared list to be used as a clearing house of information for people at the UW working in Family Planning and would like to add your contact information to the list.

If you would like to be included in the Family Planning clearing house, please also respond via the previous link.
