The Call for Abstracts for the 2019 National Sexual Health Conference will open December 1, 2018 and will close February 1, 2019.   Abstracts should highlight innovative programs, efforts and/or research related (or relevant) to sexual health in the United States.

Sexual Health is a critical issue in the United States, cutting across the fields of public health, reproductive health, disease prevention, clinical care, policy, advocacy, health equity, and the social determinants of health.  The purpose of the 2019 National Sexual Health Conference is to create a space to share information, innovations, and advances in sexual health and to develop conversations about supporting healthy sexuality in clinical and non-clinical settings for people across the lifespan. You are invited to submit an abstract to share your expertise with other participants.

All proposed posters, roundtables, and oral presentations should enhance sharing of information and skills development related to a broad spectrum of topics on sexual health, including, but not limited to, the following Pathways for Sexual Health:

  • Clinical Care
  • Education and Counseling
  • Policy and Advocacy
  • Sexual Health Across the Lifespan
  • Culture and Society
  • Health Equity
  • Prevention and Outreach
Intended Audience:
  • Providers in care related to sexually transmitted diseases, reproductive health, hepatitis, disease prevention, and health promotion
  • Primary and public health care providers

  • Roundtable Discussion
    • 70 minutes
  • Posters: Describing Research or Innovative Programs/Projects
