Top 5 Reasons You Should Attend
Before we dive into why you should attend, let’s first talk about what the InWomen’s Conference is. The International Women’s and Children’s Health and Gender (InWomen’s) Group is a multidisciplinary forum addressing all aspects of substance use among women, children, and youth. InWomen’s holds a yearly conference to bring together the smartest minds in the field of gender research and substance use.
Now, here are 5 reasons we’re calling the InWomen’s Conference a must-attend event:
It’s the ONLY conference in the world focusing on women and addiction. Nowhere else can you find a conference focused on gender inequality, reaching women who use substances, increasing HIV testing, and treating vulnerable women and adolescents globally. This year, we will set an agenda for the next decade of addiction research in the field of substance use among women, children, and youth.
We’re hosting a celebration to commemorate our 10th year. Mingle with researchers, students, and others at our evening celebration! We’ll have delicious hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar, a selfie booth to document the fun times, dancing, and Montreal native, DJ TIZI.
You’ll meet top-rated researchers from around the globe. We’ll have presentations, panel sessions, and discussion forums with some of the smartest minds in the field. View the full lineup here.
The conference takes place in the heart of downtown Montreal. The venue is connected to the underground city (Central Station), the business district (Old Montreal), and major attractions, making it the perfect place to start your exploration of the city.
You can combine InWomen’s with your trip to the Annual Meeting of the College on Problems of Drug Dependence. InWomen’s conveniently takes place the day before CPDD, and just before the NIDA International Forum, so you can easily combine your trip and save on travel.
