  2. 2. contraceptivetechnology|oct31–nov2,2013|#CTAtlanta13 2 CONTEMPORARYFORUMS.COM You’re Invited! Dear Colleagues, This year’s Contraceptive Technology conference promises to be one of the BEST, focusing on some of the most challenging dilemmas you face in your everyday practice. What do you need to know about progestin type and VTE risk in a new pill user? What about a woman with one of those medical conditions where you need to determine whether the benefits really do outweigh the risks? Are certain GYN conditions better managed through the non-contraceptive benefits of contraception? What do we know about how contraception affects herpes and HPV? Join us as the experts examine the evidence and analyze the conflicting reports. While you’re with us, take a peek into the future. What’s in the research pipeline for contraceptives of tomorrow? More pressing, what’s in the pipeline for Title X and some of the women’s health services written into the Affordable Care Act? Dr. Hatcher will share with you answers to his favorite top 10 questions that clinicians like you have sent to his website. Did you know that most of the clinicians that attend “CT” have been providing women’s health care for at least 15 years? Think of the networking opportunities you’ll have to share “war stories” and find solutions for clinical challenges you’re facing. With a choice of multiple Preconferences and concurrent sessions, your conference experience will be rich with learning, discussion and interaction. And don’t forget … the “Rock Stars” of contraception, the authors of Contraceptive Technology, will be there, eager to meet and talk with you. See you there!
