    Women’s health encompasses an ever-widening circle of issues—and family physicians like you often are the first point of contact for these moments throughout a woman’s life.

    Learn how to build stronger connections and provide expert care with Women’s Health Livestream, June 9–12, from the American Academy of Family Physicians.

    • Cardiovascular disease
    • Contraception, preconception, and pregnancy
    • Physical, emotional, and sexual abuse

    Earn up to 20 Prescribed credits when attending all the sessions.
