Scientific Program

Nanette F Santoro, MD
Chair, 2020 Scientific Program Committee

The top priority of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) is protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our Annual Meeting attendees, and ultimately the women they serve. Thus, the decision was made to hold the 2020 NAMS Annual Meeting as a virtual event.

The virtual event will include presentations from the Plenary Symposia and Special Lectures, Pre-Meeting Symposium, Menopause 101 Course, Abstract Presentations, Product Theaters, and also a Virtual Exhibit Hall.

Please stay tuned and watch your email, the NAMS website, and social media channels for news and details in on how NAMS is working to bring the Annual Meeting content to you.
