   Chair, 2023 Scientific Program Committee
The NAMS Scientific Program Committee, chaired by Lisa C. Larkin, MD, FACP, NCMP, IF, invites you to join them September 26-30, 2023, at the Marriott Downtown in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for this year’s NAMS Annual Meeting. The scientific program, with the theme NAMS 2023: Midlife Women’s Health in the Era of Precision Medicine, is a must-attend event for anyone involved with midlife women’s health issues. New for 2023, there will be two premeeting courses, including the highly successful Menopause 101 course and the new Medical Breast and Genetics 101 course. These will be offered concurrently on Tuesday, September 26. The Menopause 101 course will run from 1:00 PM to 5:15 PM, and the Medical Breast and Genetics 101 course will run from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM

The main program will begin on Wednesday, September 27, at 8:00 AM with the Opening Symposium that will speak to Precision Oncology for Midlife Women. After a short afternoon break, we will resume the program with a new offering beginning at 3:00 PM. This new session will include interactive case presentations that will test your women’s healthcare knowledge and provide an opportunity for you to participate in case discussions. We will conclude the day with Dr. Susan Reed’s Presidential Symposium, Providing Truth to Menopausal Patients in an Online World of Misinformation and Disinformation, followed by the President’s Cocktail Reception.

There will be dedicated time to visit the commercial exhibits and the opportunity to attend any of the Product Theaters scheduled throughout the meeting.

Those who register for the in-person Annual Meeting main program, which includes the Opening Symposium, will receive access to the virtual content of the presentations from the main program through OnDemand so that you can review all the valuable information when you return home. For those who are unable to join us in Philadelphia for the in-person meeting, you can register for the Annual Meeting main program and Opening Symposium, the Menopause 101 course, and the Medical Breast and Genetics 101 course virtually through OnDemand.

Menopause 101 Course—Tuesday, September 26—1:00 PM to 5:15 PM

This year’s Menopause 101 course will be led by Course Director Monica Christmas, MD, FACOG, NCMP, and will provide clinicians with a strong foundation in managing all aspects of menopause, from vasomotor symptoms and genitourinary symptoms to sleep, mood disturbances, and sexual function. The year’s course will focus on evidence-based treatment strategies for managing these menopause-related symptoms. Participants will have a better understanding of how and when to prescribe hormone therapy, along with alternate nonhormone options including integrative medicine modalities. An “Ask The Experts” opportunity has also been added to this year’s Menopause 101 course.

Medical Breast and Genetics 101 Course—Tuesday, September 26—1:00 PM to 5:00 PM

New for this year, the program will include a Medical Breast and Genetics 101 course led by Course Director Holly Pederson, MD, NCMP. Women’s healthcare professionals are commonly faced with questions about breast cancer risk estimation, options for average risk screening, supplemental screening in women with dense breast tissue, and high-risk management strategies. It’s therefore important for healthcare professionals to understand the basics of breast cancer genetics and the guidelines for the management of patients with hereditary cancer predisposition and have the confidence to communicate information and recommendations for risk management. This course will reinforce these key points in breast care and will provide a comprehensive, practical approach to addressing breast health, personalized risk assessment, and risk management.
